Another person on the list solved this one for me.  In your network
configuration options turn off the start at boot option.  

Apparently since network services is started before the pcmcia a pcmcia
network card will not be started correctly if you tell it to start at
boot.  But here is the kicker, apparently when the pcmcia services do
start the system detects the card and starts it anyway.

So by telling it not to start at boot it actually will start at boot.

It worked on my laptop and apparently worked for some others.

Of course there's no reason for it, it's just our policy.
