NM and netwrok-config-manager are certainly not the same. Try this:
service network stop
service NetworkManager
service NetworkManagerDispatcher

In gnome you will see the nm-applet icon on the upper right side of the
upper panel. Left click on it. You will see the available APs listed.
Pick the one you want and go from there.
