wireless internet connection

I have a pentium III 133 mhz

512 mhz memory

a netopia router

siemens santis wlan usb adapter


the problem is that when I start the pc, it will not make direct connection to the internet

When the pc is ready I always have to take out the usb-cable of the adapter and replug

Then the pc makes instantly a stable connection with internet

I tried different usb-ports, but always got the same result

I tried also to get the connection via the icon in the tray, without any result, I have first to replug the adapter and than all works fine

Can you please tell me what the cause is
