If this is a new install (as you mentioned), you might have better luck
installing wicd instead of trying to get it to work with Network
Manager. If you had more time then I suggest troubleshooting the issue
(particularly since you can ping the device), but since you are looking
to get something up and running quickly I suggest wicd.
[Installing Wicd in Ubuntu]
I'm assuming that you have installed intrepid, if so change from 'hardy' to:
deb http://apt.wicd.net intrepid extras
Don't forget to add the signing key:
$ wget -q http://apt.wicd.net/wicd.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
If wicd doesn't work for you (it should), you can always easily revert
back to Network Mangager.
