Ubuntu - Wifi Hangs on boot

Hey guys,

I am running the latest Ubuntu build on a Rev C BeagleBone Black. I am using a wifi dongle into the usb port on the board. The problem is that the wifi hangs on connecting to the access point about half the time on boot. When it does connect, it sometimes does not get the DNS servers and I must restart the networking service. Any ideas on how to get it to boot without attempting to connect for 5+ minutes?
