the network-manager newer really worked well for me. It looked very promising however. Now I came across the article Go Wireless With WCID on OSSGeeks.
There is no need to duplicate the nice article above on how to install it, as it is very good explained.
I gave it a try and I was really impressed with the simpleness of WCID.
