this is unlikely a upper/lower cases issue of the MAC address. It is 
possible that DriverLoader is using a different wireless interface than 
expected and this is why you have this problem. You could try to ask to 
DriverLoader to always use the same wireless interface. You can do this 
with the 'dldrconfig --netdevname' command in a root shell.

For example, if you want DriverLoader to always use the 'eth1' wireless 
interface, please run the following command in a root shell:

dldrconfig --netdevname=eth1

If you require more assistance, just after a reboot, please send at 
support at linuxant.com the output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a
root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp 
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
