This is currently a known issue, and many of us are waiting for an Apple update to resolve this issue that, for some of us, originated as a direct result of updating to 10.4.8.
I don't know if it will work for you, but I just have to turn off AirPort prior to shutdown or restart, then afterwards turn it back on. However, I don't have a Core 2 Duo, and I understand those have a somewhat different set of symptoms than does a Core Duo.
This sounds like a similar problem that I was having with a friends iMac (intel - Core 2 Duo) Think he is on 10.4.7 (the one it came with) - forgot to check that.
Modem: Netgear DG834G wireless modem.
The mac found the modem straight away but when I enabled the WEP or WPA security then it would not connect at all (something like: there was an unknown error! when trying to connect.) If I turned off the security then it worked fine. (I coppied and pasted the passwords so I didn't get that wrong.)
I could only connect by not using WEP or WPA so for a bit of security I turned off 'Broadcast Modem name (SSID)' and added the MAC address as a the only trusted device.
It also has the strange intermittent problem with connecting to the modem at startup that most people are having issues with.
