in DriverLoader 2.05, we have changed the start order of the 
DriverLoader service and it is possible that after a reboot, your 
wireless interface changed name because of this. We are aware of this 
problem and we are currently working on it.

In the meantime, you can force DriverLoader to choose a specific 
wireless interface with the 'dldrconfig --netdevname' command in a root 

For example, if you want that DriverLoader always uses the 'eth1' 
interface, then run the following command in a root shell :

dldrconfig --netdevname=eth1
