I've got a San Francisco handset running 2.1.

I've configured it to connect to my wifi network at home. If I go out of range, or reboot the phone, it fails to re-connect automatically and I have to manually go thru the settings, disable wireless, then enable it for it to re-attach itself to my network

Is there an easier way?

Add the Power Control widget (available by default in Android 2.1+ for most phones) or a similar wi-fi toggle app to your home screen. (Long press on the home screen, Widget, Power Control.) That usually fixes it for me.
