I am coming from a tangent and I apologise if I'm off the mark.  I use
ndiswrapper to run my wireless network, and it seems to break every time
I upgrade the ndiswrapper-utils package.  My fix is to extract the
driver and reinsert it, then modprobe the ndiswrapper module again.  I'm
using wpa_supplicant and ifplugd also.  Good luck
