Wireless USB dongle: Have to run YaST every day

SUSE 9.3 Pro
After being away from my computer for more then 12 hours or so I always have to run YaST > network units > network adapters > make sure my DNS-servers didn't get changed (sometimes they are replaced with the address of my router) > finish. Then my D-Link DWL-G122 wireless USB dongle is recognized by my D-Link router. I installed it using the ndiswrapper-1.1-4. My traffic is encrypted (WPA-PSK TKIP 26 character passphrase) using the wpa_supplicant-0.3.8-5. Rebooting is no problem. It is always recognized. It's being away over night that is the problem. KInternet claims that the dongle is associated (in the "wireless connection"-section (the light is green)), but if I check the connection (the top item in the KInternet menu), the /proc/net/route cannot be read and the DNS-name service is not ok (It doesn't even know the ip-address of the DNS-server).

How can I get connected automatically after being away over night, so I don't have to use YaST every time?
