Question usb wlan works but only after i unplug and plug


After finally getting my NETGEAR MA101 router to work perfectly it burned out and now I have a Siemens Gigaset USB 11. Using the same configuration as with the MA101 I now have to unplug the device and then plug it in again in order to get it to work... it must be a configuration thing, but I haven't been able come up with anything useful. Any ideas??? I'm running SUSE9.0 with a 2.4.21 kernel.

Just after startup, when I do a IWCONFIG I get:
lo no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

eth0 ATMEL RFMD503A ESSID:"NETGEAR" Nickname:"NETGEAR"
Mode:Managed Channel:11 Access Point: 00:09:5B:2D:B4:44
Bit Rate:11Mb/s

NOTE THE eth0


After I unplug the Gigaset USB 11 and then plug it in again, the IWCONFIG shows:

lo no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.
