[driverloader] System Time Driverloader

I have noticed some peculiar behaviour with driverloader when changing the 
system time. After syching time with ntp manually using the ntpdate command 
the wireless connection no longer works. Using iwconfig it still shows that 
i am connected with the mac of the access point etc.. and using wavemon i 
can see the signal strength, noise and signal to noise ratio constantly 
updating but no data is sent or received on the interface.

To get it working again i bring down the network interface then remove the 
driverloader module from the kernel with rmmod. Then i reinsert with 
modprobe and it then works fine again. I am wondering if anyone knows wat is 
goin on here ?

My setup is as follows.
hp pavillion xe4516ea laptop with 
Broadcom BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller
I have gentoo Linux with kernel 2.6.9-gentoo-r9 
i am using driverloader 2.26
