Have you checked if the wireless is enabled in first place (right click on the NetworkManager icon). It happens to me sometimes that the wireless is not enabled at boot. Enabling it fixes (somehow) the problem. However it would be nice if the wireless is enabled at all times.

Can you help with this problem?
