Hi, Wilspeak. I have experience a problem similar to this a number of times. It seems that some wireless adapters have some compatibility problems when it comes to consistency.
I have resolved this by keeping an inexpensive USB Belkin adapter on hand which so far has always worked the first time and every time with each flavor of Linux that I have tried.
You can usually find them on www.tigerdirect.com
for under $10.00.
After successfully connecting to the Internet, I usually browse around and try to find drivers for the adapter that fails.
I believe the $10.00 backup resource might not be a bad thing to keep in the toolbox.
