    Default BT2:Issue loading network drivers at startup!

    Hello all,
    I've been running BT2 Final for a while now in a dual boot conf. with Windows.
    Everything works fine, apart from that most of the times i need to reboot BT2 a few times, cause it does not load drivers properly ,i think.
    In other words, when i run Wlassistant, it says "no device found", and therefore it does not display my AP (actually Wlassistant does not even open).
    Even when try and configure it manually with iwconfig, it does not help.
    Rebooting BT2 a couple of times solves the prolem!
    The weird thing is, that everytime i hear a sound through the speakers at KDE startup, everything works fine.While if i don't hear that sound at startup, i cannot connect to my AP.
    Hope you guys can tell me why this is happening and/or know the solution to permanently resolve this issue.
    I've already searched through the various threads, but with no luck so far!
    Thanks

    I can also provide the logs of both when the issue occurs, and when it doesn't, but the file is quite big, so i cannot upload it on this thread.
    Unfortunately i cannot make any sense of the logs!
    Thanks for your help!

    Post the output of dmesg | tail right after it happens...
    dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mybrain

    Here is the dmesg | tail output after i booted up and could not find networks.

    bt ~ # dmesg | tail
    Capability LSM initialized
    input: PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad as /class/input/input6
    NTFS volume version 3.1.
    NTFS volume version 3.1.
    NET: Registered protocol family 10
    lo: Disabled Privacy Extensions
    [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:02.0[A] -> Link [LNKA] -> GSI 10 (level, low) -> IRQ 10
    [drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20060119 on minor 0

    Interesting thing is that is the same output that i had after a successful start.

    Thanks again for the interest.

    Tail will only show you the last couple of lines from the kernel messages. I had assumed something was happening after bootup, I guess not. Can you post the entire output of dmesg from both a failed and successful startup...
