This seems very unlikely. You will have to provide more detailed 
information (like the content of /etc/network/devnames and the full 
output of 'ifconfig') to us before we can investigate this.

The installer has support for wireless and asking the WEP key, but 
personally I have no experience with using it.

This is not an installer issue. Apparently there are some Gnome 
applications that do nit use gksu.
