Wireless stopped working

Hello all,

I got a strange problem and I'm hoping that someone can help me.

After coming back from my holiday and booting my laptop my wireless is not working any more.

The power light of my card is not on, and when I try to bring the device up I get the following error

[root@stratovarius ~]# ifup eth1
driverloader device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
[root@stratovarius ~]#

I looked at the output of lspci and did see something strange that I think is the reason, although nothing is changed on my laptop

00:09.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1410 PC card Cardbus Controller (rev 02)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go 32M] (rev a3)
02:00.0 Non-VGA unclassified device: Gammagraphx, Inc.: Unknown device 0002 (rev 08)

If I eject the card and insert it again, the system does detect this, but I am almost convinced I had the 02:00 address with IRQ 10 for the network card.

So how to get rid of the strange gammagrpahx device, and how did this get here so I can prevent this from happening again?

I have a linksys using the acx111 (TI) and the linuxant driverloader.

As some extra info, looking in the hardware browser I see that the

gammagraphx is using the ohci-hcd driver
