Could you just use your distro's /etc/sysconfig/network
scripts for resume? Is there an /etc/init.d/network
script? After you stop the network and rmmod the module
what happens if you just run the distro's script? Also
(very minor point) you probably don't need ifconfig eth1
up before dhcpcd eth1.
Dhcpcd will bring it up.
Just for fun, see where you are in your script after the
iwconfig essid line, add 'echo " now the essid should be
then 'iwconfig eth1' to see if you have the essid set at
this point in your script..
Hope this helps..
