Well the first question is: what's in ifconfig.wm0 and ifconfig.wm?
If you try to assign the same address to both, for example, that is
likely to fail.
Also: these two ethernet cables you mention, are they both connected to
the same network, or to different networks? The first is usually not
helpful, unless you specifically set up load sharing or something
