If you are logging in through the console port that could be why your having issues with your wifi coming up properly. I have a fire and have had this issue for a while now, but never cared enough to try and find a work around or fix.. So might wanna check and see if thats the cause for you as well

Thanks, tried that, WiFi does not start from cold boot no matter....

By comparing the text emitted during the boot process I can see there are many differences as to when things occur.
I believe this is caused by the new event-driven init system. The goal is to boot faster. The downside are side-effects like this.

Giving the commands "ifdown wlan0" followed by "ifup wlan0" gets WiFi on its feet.
The solution is to write a start-up script.

When rebooted by writing "reboot -n" WiFi starts fine.

How can I get WiFi to start from cold?

It seems to me that there are som race (timing differences) during the
boot sequence?

Code revisions used:
uImage-overo-201011150741.bin
omap3-console-image-overo-201011150741.tar.bz2

There are two modifications:

Modified /etc/network/interfaces:

allow-hotplug wlan0
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
       pre-up wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
       down killall wpa_supplicant

Added /etc/wpa_supplicant-config

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1

network={
     ssid="xxxxx"
     proto=WPA2                 # try WPA RSN if you WPA2 fails
     key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
     pairwise=CCMP TKIP
     group=CCMP TKIP
     scan_ssid=1
     psk="yyyyy"
     priority=10
}

Please help!
