It looks like you might be affected by this Debian bug:

Regarding the wireless problem, is your network device firmware configured
properly?  One way to tell is to run "ifconfig -a" and make sure a wlan0
entry shows up.  Other than that, I have noticed that nm-applet is not
exactly user-friendly; if one little field is not configured correctly it
won't enable the "Connect" or "Save" buttons, and it won't tell you what
you did wrong either.
