Frankly you will be better off if you uncheck the "let windows configure" box, and use the utility that came with the card. You will get more functionality, and the configuration will stick.

I have a Fujitsu Lifebook S6120D and had the same problem.  Whenever, I booted up my computer the network would always be down and I would have to select the "let windows configure box" before the network would start running.  I installed every patch I could find.  I gave up.

Luckily I saw the comment from "public" about using the the utility that came with the card (Atheros).  It worked.  After rebooting the network automatically connected without problems.  Also, the wierd thing was that after I started using the Atheros utility then the "let windows configure" box became functional again and remained checked after bootup.  However, I decided to continue to use the Atheros utility instead.
