There is a thread about this from a couple of days ago.
Basically you need to edit two lines in the file
Go to end of the file to the lines which start with
: "start_fn" and "stop_fn"
replace the word "return" with "ifup $1;" and "ifdown $1;" as
appropriate and then the networking with the wireless card will
be brought up automatically.
I went through the same issues with SID and you need to take care
to watch what an upgrade will do. Generally it manages to be a
useful desktop system with up to date stuff.
right now I am trying to sort out why my laptop will no longer
powers down automatically at shutdown and the battery monitor no
longer works after a recent upgrade. so you are not alone.
