It's also perplexing in that (if I have this right) you did a successful
install with a beta version of the Squeeze installer! Looking at the
logs in a console may give a clue; dmesg or /var/log/syslog. The lsmod
commmand should confirm the drivers are loaded but you could try using
modprobe to remove and reinsert them before retrying a detection and
reconfiguration of the network.
