AFAIR that does help (it's been a while) but it still takes some time. I do
think that your ping idea in the if-up script may help, as I suspect that in
some way, the card is slow to wake up, so starting the wake-up process there
may help. It's NOT the same as your problem, though, as it will eventually
respond to pings.
