Why do I have to unplug my USB adapter to get it to work?

I'm running Mandrake 10.1 and I'm using the linux-wlan prism2 drivers to get my MN-510 USB adapter to work. The boot-up screen tells me that my wlan connection is OK, and the plugged in network icon indicates that my network is up. When I open my browser, it just says "looking up" If I unplug my USB adapter, and then plug it back in, my network works. I read the README and FAQ, but I can't find my problem.

Do you have coldplug properly installed and set up for boot?

Probably not because I don't know what that is. Can you tell me how to configure that for my USB adapter please?
