how to plug and play USB Wi-Fi adapter on Beagleboard?

Hi guys,

I have a USB Wi-Fi adapter and have connected to my Beagleboard. I use wpa supplicant to config the wifi card to connect my wifi network. If I plug the adapter to the board and then boot it, the wpa supplicant and DHCP can run correctly (I changed /etc/network/interface). But if I plug the card to the board which is running, I don’t know how to run wpa supplicant application and DHCP client after the device driver automaticlly loaded. Any ideas about that? Thank you very much.

Best regards,
