Have you verified the correct module is loaded after boot?

Try an: lsmod

I would suggest taking a look at the modules list you're getting when you use the install cd (and which are in use) and the modules list after you finish the install and compare which are in use in each case to isolate which module you need. It sounds like a simple matter of a non-loaded module after the install.

What make and model of card are you using? Is the correct module available after the install and is it loaded?
