[    8.517526] radeon_cp: Failed to load firmware "radeon/R100_cp.bin"
[    8.517583] [drm:r100_cp_init] *ERROR* Failed to load firmware!

You can get rid of this by installing firmare-linux-nofree (from 
non-free of course).

It seems your card is PCMCIA (please mention such details in the future) 
and the driver complains about missing firmware...

[   10.387667] orinoco_cs 2.0: Firmware determined as Lucent/Agere 8.10
[   10.388565] orinoco_cs 2.0: firmware: requesting agere_sta_fw.bin
[   10.393849] orinoco_cs 2.0: firmware: requesting agere_sta_fw.bin
[   10.400370] orinoco_cs 2.0: Cannot find firmware agere_sta_fw.bin

... which seems to be in the same firmware-linux-nonfree package. 
Install that and repost your dmesg if you still have troubles.

Hope this helps,
