[driverloader] driverloader doesn't load correctly on boot

a workaround might be to put the reload commands in '/etc/rc.local'. This
script is usually run at the end of the boot process.

Also, maybe you could also set the interface not to start on boot and put
"ifup interface_name" in '/etc/rc.local'.

Thanks, but the module is loading (I've tried both modules.autoload &
modules.conf, including an additional testing after receiving your post).
It shows up under iwlist & iwconfig, but nothing exists outside the
laptop until I manually reload.
