I'm running ubuntu 10.4  I have a USB wireless adapter.  Works fine.  But after rebooting it doesnt become active until I login as a user.

The problem is I access this PC remotely via VNC and if I reboot I get locked out until somebody logs it in.

How can I make the USB Wireless active even at the login screen?

I had the same problem, but then I bought myself a dlan adapter, and did not to worry about anymore.
What you can do is surely configure your net up script to connect when activating the network.
But there aree better optione:
