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?

But there aree better optione:
