[driverloader] eth0 disabled after start up (Suse 9, DWL-G650+)

Driverloader is great, except I have to eject and re-insert my D-Link
DWL-G650+ whenever I booted or re-booted my laptop.
Symtoms are as follows: after booting (see
http://22.214.171.124/temp/dmesg for my dmesg-log and
http://126.96.36.199/temp/lsmod for the output of my lsmod-command)
ifconfig will not show eth0 (http://188.8.131.52/temp/ifconfig as you
can see I have vmWare installed) and iwconfig
(http://184.108.40.206/temp/iwconfig) will contain a wireless card, but
no connection. dmesg says it's disconnected. The "Act"-LED does not
blink, but the "Link"-LED is on.
When I eject and insert the card again, I'll see the following dmesg
(http://220.127.116.11/temp/dmesg_working) and lsmod
(http://18.104.22.168/temp/lsmod_working). As you can see, there is now
a "eth0: New link status: Connected (0001)", the brigde actually starts
and Act blinks when data is transferred.
I've been having this for some months, so I know it's not limited to my
current 2.4.21-199-default kernel but the 2.4.21s that I used before
upgrading to this kernel are affected as well.
Does anybody have an idea or a similar problem?
mit freundlichen Grüßen
