Wireless Network Connection Problems


I have a real interesting problem. Note this worked great before I had to reformat/reinstall. I have a Netgear Wireless G PC Card for my laptop. I have the madwifi driver compiled and installed. I put this in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:

iwconfig ath0 essid Qf734EdTu8W
iwpriv ath0 mode 3
iwconfig ath0 key 684D083EECE11F6DC18D187749
iwconfig ath0 192.168.1.13 255.255.255.0
route add default gw 192.168.1.1

However, when I boot into Fedora, it doesn't connect unless I take out the PC Card, put it back in, and then give it the essid and iwpriv commands again. It then connects. Anyone have any ideas? I thought perhaps I'm missing something in my custom kernel (2.6.13) I made. But I have all modules for PC Card support and such.
