Archlinux uses a package called netcfg, I am not sure if this is distro specific though. Its essentially a set of scripts that streamline all the different steps involved to connect wirelessly. Just put your stuff into a config file and away you go.

Configuring wireless using command line is painful. Been there done that.

But a good way to configure it from the command line is to  install
the wicd-curses package, and whatever it depends on.

Much much easier that way.
