You can use gconf-editor to toggle the autoconnect flag for the connections,
once you've connected once. This seems to work.
(With the caveat that the whole thing is acting really flaky for me. Once
I connect to one network -- or even *try* to connect -- the network card
then loses the ability to scan for any networks or connect to other ones
until I reboot.)
A driver based on mac80211 perhaps? which one? At least ipw2200 has
been pretty stable for me; I have also tried rt76_usb + mac80211 and
that's been OK.
