Problem with Radio Kill Switch

I have some problem with my wireless card, and I haven't found any solution on the web. My situation is the following:

I've a running kernel- and wireless works fine! But when I enable the asus-acpi module ON BOOT I get the message, that the Radio Kill Switch is off. I know it has to be turned on to get the wireless working. So now, if I don't load the asus-acpi-module on boot, but after starting kde, everything is also working fine. Also in Windows, Wireless is working, even when the switch is reported as off in Linux.

Now I have no idea what I can do, and loading the module everytime manually after boot can't be a solution!

I appreciate any suggestion!
(By the way, echoing any number to the relevant file does not work either, and my wlan button does not work!)

Thanks in advance
