What type of encryption do you use?

I would try to bring up the wireless manually first, e.g. for WEP

iwconfig eth1 essid montan key your_wep_key enc on rate 54Mbps
(w.o. slash, that's probably wrong in your ifcfg-eth1)

ifconfig eth1 up
dhcpcd eth1

If you use WPA you need a wpa client, don't know if the iwp2200
can use wpa_supplicant.
