This doesn't work for me. The log says that some usb device is
plugged-in, but the zd1211rw driver isn't loaded.

I use an open network, so I don't think I need wpasupplicant.

I use dhcp on an open network, and the usb stick is eth1, so I tried

allow-hotplug eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
wpa-driver wext
wireless-essid MyOpenNetwork

it almost worked, I got a connection but no dhcp ip. 
I don't use my laptop that much, so I can live with my current setup
that works. Plugging in the usb stick after reboots, and this little
wlan.sh script for connecting.
sudo iwconfig eth1 essid MyOpenNetwork

I have not tried downgrading the firmware yet.

Thanks for all help,
