Kdesu does not function properly

Kdesudo does work but sudo is generally not the preferred method for 
Debian users

I posted a workaround in the forum:

 From normal Squeeze repos, wpagui works better here than 
knetworkmanager ever did. It is qt4 but will not also install half of 
kde4 as deps. I use "apt-get install no-install-recommends wpagui"

This link is the best wpagui setup info I know of:

Don't know about your kdm, someone else might if you post more info. 
Works fine here.
