Thank you all who contributed to the solution for this thread.

The fix was to change udev's rules to assign wlan0 to the card instead of wlan1. The USB wireless adapter was assigned to wlan0, but it wasn't present most of the time, so that's why it didn't work. I modified /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, changing wlan1 to wlan0. I also changed eth1 to eth0 for my wired network card while I was at it. I'm posting this now via a library's wireless network, so it is proven to work now.

Question

I know from helping you, Tron, that the command ifconfig issued as root didn't show either a wired or a wireless adapter when they were configured to be eth1 and wlan1. Can anyone explain why they weren't identified by ifconfig? (ifconfig -a was not tried.)

Look at the 'man ifconfig';
Quote:
If no arguments are given, ifconfig displays the status of the currently active interfaces. If a single interface argument is given, it displays the status of the given interface only; if a single -a argument is given, it displays the status of all interfaces, even those that are down. Otherwise, it configures an interface.
