    you can enable the network manager services from the gnome menu System-Administrator-services. also to be sure that your wifi is working before you can try the following as root.

    iwconfig (and then see with interface is a wireless extension let's say eth1)

    iwconfig eth1 essid (your_network_name) mode manages key (your_key or off if there is no key)
    dhclient eth1.

    so eth0 is not your wifi card, post the output of iwconfig please.

    Sorry it's your wifi Card , so i believe that you did a mistake when typing the command , let's split the command
    here is my case

    iwconfig eth0 essid Alic-7cad mode managed ( press enter)
    iwconfig eth0 key AR2345rnf..............
    dhclient eth0

    and post if there is any problem.
