even if you have used the workaround, you should still be able to bring 
down your wireless interface with the 'ifdown eth0' command in a root shell.

What do you mean that the kernel doesn't see the card? Can you see your 
wireless card in the output of the 'iwconfig' command in a root shell 
while the DriverLoader module is in the kernel?
