I had my SiS900 running under 1.5, 1.6, 1.6ZG and now 2.0_RC1.
In 1.5 (and 1.6 as if I remember right), try to ifconfig up and ifconfig
down the card several times. Worked for me _sometimes_.
Or use a 2.0 pre-release, the card seems to run fine now.
About your wireless card, also, try 2.0_RC1, for my Senao card, this
release works - in contrast to 1.6ZG.
