Bug Description

After startup, the network indicator on the screen shows that there is not network, even all hotspots are working. It starts searching networks only when I disable and re-enable the network several times. Sometimes there is network when the system is just started but mostly there is not and I have to play with this disable - re-enable game several times.
The Wireless indicator LED is always off, even the network is working.
The Wifi activating keys are Fn+F2, it doesn't affects the Wifi at all.

I used Windows before, there were always network when the system just started, the LED was always ON in this case, and I could switch it on/off using the FN+F2 key.

I think for most people the FN+F2 and the LED are not so disturbing, but it would be great not to play the game with the wifi at most startup.
Unfortunately I have no idea what does package means, I installed Ubuntu Jaunty from the original Live CD, and the wifi does this from the beginning.
