The above advice makes sense except I have my wireless connection
configured to start at boot but it does not. At least when I use
NetworkManager it does not, I think you may be using the network script
and should be to using NetworkManager and NetworkManagerDispatcher
scripts. These are init.d scripts. 

It makes no sense for your wireless to connect on boot since that will
prevent you from choosing the correct AP connection to attach to if you
move the machine around.
