I want to request that you bottom post your replies in order
to follow the list rules. I'm guilty of top posting usually
when responding to some flame but generally I bottom post to
all normal list mail to keep everyone happy.
I'm not sure I can help you as I'm a network dummy too. However
if your having trouble with network manager on KDE, I use it
too, I would purge network manager and use wicd instead. That's
what I do now and it has stopped all the reinstalling of my
wlan0 and it just stays setup and works.
I'm using a simple 28 bit encryption key(router WEP key) for my
WPA passkey or password whatever it's called but NoOp helped me
to set it up. If you purge network manager and install wicd:

sudo aptitude purge network-manager
sudo aptitude install wicd

I would attempt to help you install your wireless connection
again or perhaps you know more about this and can do it yourself.
Network-manager is supposed to be fixed in intrepid(8.10) but I
don't trust it on wireless. I only have hardy installed on this
machine and don't know if you have to reinstall wireless every
time you upgrade or not. I suppose you are using ubuntu and not
kubuntu although I understand kubuntu works better with wireless.
Anyway, after the switch to wicd, you need help I'll be glad to
try and if I can't help, someone else surely will. Good luck.
