If you got an IP, your wireless is turned on, and it is working (i.e.
communicating with your wireless router.

It sounds like you do not have a gateway. What is the output of
/sbin/route -n? If it shows no gateway, it is probably because of a
misconfiguration of your ethernet card and wireless. Since you can only
have one gateway, dhcp probably is setup on the ethernet to get the
address and gateway. Try setting both network adapters to
STARTMODE=ifplugd (IIRC). I believe this will, if the ethernet is not
plugged in, will allow the dhcp client to assign the gateway for the
adapter that is actually working at the time. HTH
