Theres software that does all that, like NetworkManager, so I don't have to worry about those details anymore.
I haven't used Network Manager in a long time. It was really buggy the last time I used it, but may be OK now.
I don't often change networks. When I do, it's to use free (or at least unencrypted) WiFi in hotel rooms, conferences, etc. For that, iwlist, iwconfig and dhclient are really quick. I can probably set up my network on the command line as fast as I'd be able to with a GUI.
If I had to manage many WAP keys, then yeah... I'd use something else.
