    Congratulations, your system might work better...
    Seriously now, use an editor to open /etc/network/interfaces and add an "auto" line to the interface(s) you want started automatically. Details here.

    I switched to "wicd" and mine works great now.

    If you want to try "wicd" just add:
    Code:
    deb http://apt.wicd.net hardy extras
    to your "/etc/apt/sources.list" file (change hardy to whatever version your running) and:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install wicd
    Hope this helps.......
