Hi Daniel,

Sorry, of course I should have included more information
about the network configuration. Here is the entry in

auto wlan0
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
        wireless_essid harrinet
        wireless_mode managed
        wireless_rate auto
        wireless_key XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX key on
        wireless_encryption restricted
        pre-up iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules

Obviously the essid is set. The same setup works for
zd1211-rev80 without problems.

The USB driver zd1211rw and its dependencies are loaded by
udev, as soon as I plugin the network dongle (WL-430U). With
"there is no MAC" I mean that iwconfig doesn't show the MAC
of the wireless switch. AFAIK this indicates that this is a
low level problem, independent of WPA, WEP, or some iptables
