netgear ma101 makes me go @$%!
this stupid card which i use to get to my wireless network is so frustrating. when ever i have to shut down (which is thankfully rare) the card will not work. if i unplug it and replug it in (or when i start up) it get this message from /var/log/messages:
the only way i can get this stupid thing to work is to, sigh, boot in windows, reboot w/out shutting down and then boot back until Mandrake. so my two questions are: Why is it doing this and how do I fix it?
