It's not true that NM never works with WEP, 
as I am using WEP with a Linksys WRT54GL,
on various Thinkpads (T43 and T23 with Orinoco Gold Card)
and EeePCs.
What machine are you using?
And what does /var/log/messages say about NM?

Admittedly I'm now running Fedora-10,
but it did work with standard Fedora-9 (+KDE).
I mention this as the Orinoco card works a little more reliably
with Fedora-10, I think.

I sympathise with you;
NM is appallingly bad at telling you what is wrong if it is not working.
