Bug Description

two problems which I think they could be connected. My kernel is 2.6.31-17-generic on Karmic, EEEPC 1000He

#1

When I start the computer, everything goes fine. Wi-fi starts automaticaly and connect without problem.
but when Karmic wakes up from sleep mode, I must press Fn+f2 to activate my wifi card.
Which leads to problem #2

#2 When I have to activate my wireless with Fn+F2, the led goes on for a second and then goes off. I have to repeat Fn+F2 up to 8 times before the led stay "on"

here's the syslog of what's going on when I'm pressing Fn+F2

I'm experiencing the same issue with Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) Beta 1 and a Belkin F5D8013 PCMCIA 802.11n card. This also has the RT2860. When I insert it the LEDs are off and "pccardctl status" shows "no card". When I reinsert it the LEDs come on and pccardctl reports "3.3V 32-bit PC Card". It then is detected by NetworkManager and I can connect.

An Entrasys CSIBD-AA-128 802.11b PCMCIA card has similar issues. Will send apport-collect data.
