I'm using Fedora 9, and when I right click the Network Manager applet
in my task tray, and choose "Edit Connections," I find that these
kinds of solutions are available in the IP setup tab for any of my
wireless networks.  For example, there's a setting for "DHCP
(addresses only)," and there's a setting to put in a BSSID for a
particular wireless AP, so you can create connections that are per-AP
if you like, and then select them manually from the applet.

There's also the /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ folder, which lets
you drop scripts in for special management whenever Network Manager
connects or disconnects.
