Switching Between Wired and Wireless

I have a question that I hope can be answered. I use KDE with WPA for the wireless and currently when I switch between a wired static ip and a dhcp wireless I essentially have to reboot twice in order to get the wireless to work again. Everything I try on the first reboot fails... ifconfig wlan0 up/down; if-up/down wlan0. However, if using dhcp on both (wired/wireless) everything seems to be ok. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make this transition a smooth one? Once I get this figured out my next qquestion is going to be how the heck to get static ip for wireless working. I don't need this right now but eventually I would like to know what my options are for this.

Also why the heck can't one program manage wired/wireless with WPA.

Thanks in advance!
