Default Problem SOLVED!

Please ignore my previous post.

I have managed to solve my problem. Apparently Network Manager in karmic only allows your wifi to activate upon logging in to Gnome or KDE (not sure if this is a bug or what).

I solved the problem by installing wicd (which replaces network manager) and configuring the wifi to automatically start. When the machine rebooted, the wifi was up even before I logged into Gnome.

Hope this helps you as well.
