OK, then there are still two other options I can think of.

a) Uninstall knetworkmanager and install nm-applet (that is the equivalent 
for Gnome).

b) Install wicd instead of networkmanager.

I know nm-applet works with Intrepid while I had problems with 
knetworkmanager. However I can't tell you if it works with WEP because I 
only use WPA2 here. And I don't have Intrepid installed so I can't test
