My wireless also drove me insane the last couple of weeks.
Mine dropped the connection after working fine for several minutes, then
the only way to get it to connect again was to logout/reboot :(
One of two things more or less fixed it for me:

   1. tried to improve my signal so it doesn't drop so often.
      - moved the chordless phone 50cm further from the router, because
      that will interfere.
      - tried to adjust the antenna angles to get the best coverage, the
      signal propagates horizontally if you look at the antena
straight down from
      its top to its base (((o)))  i.e. if you live in a single-story
house make
      sure the antenna points straight up or down.
      - If your signal drops for non-obvious resons you can consider
      better antennas too..
   2. I added the following to /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf
