Fedora Internet Access Problems


Im newbie to Fedora core 5. I have wired and wireless network at home. Sometimes I can connect wired/wirelessly but the majority of the time I can't. The three tools I tinker with are:

Wireless assistant
Control Center(Network connections)

By tinkering with with enabling network/disabling, remaking wireless profiles/removing I have about a 10% sucess rate of getting it to work. Even when it does work the next time I use the computer I'll have the same problems. Really frustrated with having to fidle with 3 seperate tools to *sometimes* get internet working.

Can someone recommend me an app that has an all-in-one tool for managing connections or perhaps a distro that has an easier time at this? Should I get Ubuntu? I hear its more stable.

ps. i have windows on my laptop aswell and with ibm access connections connecting to different profiles and configuing them is a breeze.

What are your network interfaces (hardware-wise)? I don't use Fedora any more, but in the past it never caused me any trouble for wired connections.
