since you have a CardBUS (32-bit PCMCIA) wireless card, it is quite 
possible that the problem is that the 'network' service is started 
before the 'pcmcia' service. Please follow these instructions to change 
the starting order of your services :

Please take a look at both the '/etc/init.d/network' and the 
'/etc/init.d/pcmcia' files. In each file, you should see a line like this :

# chkconfig <run level number> <start prio number> <kill prio number>

Then, please edit the '/etc/init.d/pcmcia' file and change the <start 
prio number> to the <start prio number> found in the 
'/etc/init.d/network' file minus one. You will also have to change the 
<kill prio number> which can be calculated with this simple formula :

<kill prio number> = 100 - <start prio number>

After the modifications have been made to the '/etc/init.d/pcmcia' file, 
please run the following command in a root shell :

chkconfig pcmcia reset
