pcmcia starts, but doesnt bring up eth0

I am running Debian 3.0 testing/unstable, here is my current problem:

I have both a wireless and a wired network card. I primarily use the wireless, but both do the same thing. When I boot up, it gets to the point where it initializes my pcmcia, beep, beep, and everything appears fine and dandy. However, once it is fully booted, I cannot browse or ping anything, including the AP. If I do:

cardctl eject
cardctl insert
ifup wlan0 or eth0 (depending on which card is in)

it comes up and works wonderfully. Is there something funky in my /etc/init.d/pcmcia or something??
what can I do to make this work properly?
