I'm assuming that you mean: in wheezy gnome-shell's wireless icon on the 
tab doesn't give you the same setup options that squeeze's gnome 2 did.

One possibility is to choose Gnome Classic mode when you log in to 
gnome.  This will give you something that looks like gnome 2 and you can 
get the old setup options.  After you configure not to auto-connect to a 
particular network, if you want to use gnome shell again, you can log 
out and log back in with that choice.
