I've put the following to my /etc/network/interfaces:
# pre*s for the Longshine
pre-up modprobe -r zd1211
pre-up modprobe -r firmware_class
pre-up modprobe zd1211
# Longshine USB stick
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
I've updated my drivers to svnr38 based on
zd1211-source-0.0.0.svnr23-3 available in Debian.
The path to source is always uphill!
