In the past, I have configured the wireless interface for use with
the network service. You just add the information to the ifconfig
file for the interface. (And change your service configuration so
network runs instead of Network Manager.)

One thing that may make a difference is to add restricted to the key
setting string.

iwconfig wlan0 key restricted <key>

I know with the way I have my router configured, you can not get an
IP address unless you have the key and the restricted option. (Now
if only some of the things connected were not limited to WEP so I
could convert it to WPA.)
