Network manager advice

Hello all

Can anyone clarify how network management works by default in Trinity? Coming 
from a Gnome background I was expecting an all-around Wired/Wireless manager 
akin to network-manager but have had no such luck.

I primarily use WiFi, and did try out KWiFiManager, but it appears to be quite 
buggy. Specifically, for my card it states that 'no networks [were] found' 
(but the same scan with iwlist returns a network list).

I would ideally like to use network-manager, and while I have heard whispers 
online about a package called network-manager-tde (it turns up in a few 
Google results); it does not appear to be available in the TDE repository.

I'm running Debian 7 (Wheezy).
