USB WiFi adapter working from cold boot but not a restart

ViperViper Registered
Ive had this issue a while now across several different distributions.
While its not a huge problem it is getting annoying.
Every time I restart my computer the WiFi adapter does not work as it is "disabled by a hardware switch" however a cold boot does not yield the same results as it then works perfectly fine.
what could be causing it to fail under a restart but not a cold boot?
Removing and reinserting the adapter does nothing.

lsusb says:
"Bus 002 Device 003: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter"
It does not say anything different when it is "disabled"

    Do you have to mode switch the card for it to work ??

    also on reboot how do you fix the error of it being disabled ??

    Can you pleade provide some logs and dmesg output :)

    No mode switch is required to get it working, to get it to work i have to shut it down fully and and start it gain (not by just clicking restart)
    two dmesg outputs are included; one when its working and one when its "disabled"

    Note: You can paste the output to https://gist.github.com and use our Gist plugin on the forums to embed it in your post :)

    But if you prefer compressing and uploading the archive please use Tarballs so we dont have to use extra packages :)

    Excellent looks pretty standard

    Now can you please paste the the output of the following
    lsusb
    lspci
    lsmod
    

    Because it seems you may have a Driver Conflict :)

    Ive already given you the output of lsusb in the first post and lspci would be pointless as it is NOT a PCI WLAN card.

    lsmod when it is working

    lsmod when it is "disabled"
    https://gist.github.com/anonymous/ed398e724a2bcd71a08f

    and what I really want to know is why it works from a cold boot but not a restart

    The Reason i asked for the output of lspci is to see if you have a pci wireless card / wireless/bluetooth card onboard because i think its possible you have a driver conflict.

    Can you also paste the output of
    ip link
    iw list 
    ifconfig
    

    Before and After reboot

    cheers
