I'm trying to enable the netctl-auto@${interface} service for each wireless interface on Arch Linux. $interfaces gives me a list of all interface names, but how do I distinguish between wired and wireless interfaces in Puppet?

What you need is a custom fact that returns the list of wireless NICs for you. You could try some string manipulation and built in facts but I don't advise that.

The easiest way to do is just to define them statically as external facts.

If you need them to be generated dynamically then you'll need to write a custom fact.

I assume you're using the latest version of Facter 3.1. If not, search out the earlier versions of the Facter docs, but the procedure is pretty similar.
