I'm having a problem getting my wlan0 interface to auto load at startup.
I am using ndiswrapper for my Zoom Wireless-G USB card because there are no linux drivers for it. I have also decided to use Wicd for managing my wireless connections, as opposed to using netcfg like I used to use.
The problem i'm having is that arch automatically starts my ethernet interface (eth0) on startup, yet it won't auto start my wireless interface (wlan0). Therefore I can't see any wireless connections. However, if I bring up the interface manually (ifconfig wlan0 up), then the wireless works fine.
During the setup of Wicd the manual told me to comment out the eth0 and wlan0 interfaces in /etc/rc.conf, im assuming this is because Wicd carries out these options instead. I have tried uncommenting the wlan0 interface in /etc/rc.conf and still no success. Does anyone have any idea why its starting my eth0 interface, but not my wlan0 interface?.
*note* in my deamons array I have the following:
When I uncommented the wlan0 interface in rc.conf i also uncommented the network deamon too.

Thanks in advance,
