Thanks for further input, but I do have the driver r76 running with the patch from Mayne by now.

I continue to have the problem that the system hangs if the WLAN-USB-stick is present during boot. It appears to be at the initialization of the usb part of a different driver:

bt878: AUDIO driver version 0.0.0 loaded
bt878: Bt878 AUDIO function found (0).
PCI: Found IRQ 5 for device 0000:00:0b.1
PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 0000:00:07.2
PCI: Sharing IRQ 5 with 0000:00:0b.0
bt878(0): Bt878 (rev 17) at 00:0b.1, irq 5, latency: 32, memory: 0xd8004000
     bt878: loaded successfully
btaudio: driver version 0.7 loaded [digital+analog]
     btaudio: loaded successfully
     snd-bt87x: loaded successfully
     ignoring pci display device 01:00.0
   pci      [success]

Here it hangs.

I found out how wpa_supplicant is supposed to work. Now I have in my /etc/network/interfaces:
  allow-hotplug wlan0
  iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wpa-driver wext
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Anyhow, if I plug-in the stick, wpa_supplicant does not establish a connection. Only if I invoke it manually, it works:
  wpa_supplicant -B -w -Dext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
  sleep 5

After that the connection is very unreliable. Twice a minute, I hear a low beep and the system does not react any more for about two seconds, after which I hear a high beep and everything is fine, again. After about ten minutes, this stops and the connection is uninterrupted from then on.

I would appreciate any further help as on how to resolve the boot issue, how to get wpa_supplicant invoked automatically, and how to have the connection stable from the beginning.
