Went to 7.10, wireless works great, but need the command to be online when booting up.
Had it before but lost the info.

I had the same problem in Gutsy and now in Hardy Heron too.
My configuraton: Acer 5100 / Atheros wireless card an another computer with sis163u USB dongle (working with ndiswrapper) The restricted Atheros driver and ndiswrapper works perfectly but i need to re-enter wpa2 password at each boot. I encounter this problem on both computers.

1 i installed wicd from here: http://wicd.sourceforge.net/download.php (all installation information is here)
2 restart
3 reenter wireless password in network setup utility and verify connectivity (at this time wicd applet will show network activity)
4 enter wireless password in wicd utility in advanced settings and check "automatically connect"

After restart wireless started without problem for me

Observation: network-manager is removed and replaced with wicd
