I noticed this when installing with KDE4 already there. I didn't try
with a preinstalled GNOME or LXDE. I fixed it by doing a minimal
install of Debian with no gui, then installing via apt-get.

Does kdesudo work? If you selected to turn off root logins when
installing, kdesu may not work.

I didn't have a chance to configure a network (my hard disk died soon
after I installed Debian), but if Debian has NetworkManager, you might
be able to use KNetworkManager. It will at least support WPA(1/2) if
you have the wpa_supplicant service started, but KWifi doesn't.
