wlan config lost after reboot

Hi All, I installed a d- link wireless pci card and set it up using ndiswrapper. Everything works fine, but when I reboot or shut down the system the connection no longer works and has to be reconfigured all over again. I selected " start at boot " during the configuration. At reboot the icon appears on the task bar with the dreaded red X, and nothing in the menu seems to work.I have Googled and also searched LQ but have found no solution. Kicking the computer has also had no effect . I am using mandy LE 2005 and am well pleased with the os. The wlan config was done from the Mandy Control Center. Oh, btw, restarting the X system does not lose the connection. only shutdown or reboot. Thanks in advance for any help, Larry.

I'm facing the same issue. I have a realtek card and have to reinstall the driver every time I reboot or cold boot.

Lightbulb ditto

I have the same problem on a laptop with a dlink dwl 610 PCMCIA wireless.

however it is not necessary to reconfigure the entire thing. Instead go to computer settings > network > and click setup new connection > wireless connection > use windows driver with ndiswrapper > use current driver Now at this point I can see the card starts and remembers all settings. You can click cancel and the card will continue to work... until reboot
