-KnetworkManage pops open a little box asking for the WEP key. Enter it 
-and connected. I would expect it should act the same way on the Eee. 
-Maybe some little whatsit got left out during the KDE install.

When I installed KDE something didn't load properly.
Or something I removed when I removed Gnome from the install.
