The Debian initsript delays hotplug actions while running rcS.d scripts. The
firmware was loaded while stting  up runlevel 2, but this was to late 'cause
networking started in rcS already. I filed a bug against the init-script. Using
the initscript out of original sources (which can be find in the debian source
package as well) solved the problem for me. For that I removed all runlevel
hotplug links for the levels 2to5.



  It's a good thing we don't get all 
  the government we pay for.
