Maybe in your case is like reinventing the wheel, but in other cases it seems 
the wheel is still like a square. Moreover seems to me that my script failure 
isn't being caused by a bug in the script itself, because it fails on the 
very first action, "ifconfig eth5 up". I guess the same error would happen 
with your distro scripts and my hardware. And the same error happens also if 
I try to bring the interface up from the command line, just after a reboot:

# ifconfig eth5 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Connection timeout

but this should be the first thing to do before doing anything else. I'm 
stuck. iwevent output is plain silence. I suspect that it's not dhclient or 
other Debian scripts bringing the interface down, but it's the driver failing 
to bring it up. This would explain why I have 3 computers working and 2 not 
(different hardware, probably different USB controllers, only the wireless 
adapter is the same).
