Network manager definitely has bugs sir. For example, I had to force NM 
to use WEP key....WEP was selected with the radio button but only after 
I used:
ifconfig iwi0 wepmode on -> then used gui to enter wep was I able to 
associate with my network. I was able to add gateway and IP/subnet using 
the GUI as well. There is definitely quite a few bugs with the GUI but I 
haven't the time to write a report.

Anyhow, did you specify DNS server in "advanced" (1.5 was "admin mode"), 
7 has advanced tab, enter your DNS and gateway in the respective fields. 
Once you have that setup, did you run dhclient re0?
