Thanks for your hint..

It didn't work with ATMEL410 but I tried the various MIB extension and I
discovered the problem was caused by usage of GEMTEK MIB extension. If I
set it to "NONE", Wireless configuration page is now displaying
correctly. If you need any network dump to fix autodetection, feel free
to ask.

But I found another bug : wireless configuration stays in polling mode
for configuration retrieval (I'm using french locale) unless I force
POSIX locale using LC_MESSAGES=C.
