Ok, looks like no solution for this one.  I've thought of 3 ways around it:
- (using Lubuntu) manually fetch network-manager-tde and all its
dependencies and install them in my TDE installation, in hopes of
using it to make the connection.
- try to find a wired connection or a network that uses WPA.
- get the Ubuntu live CD, which looks more current than the Debian one
that I installed from.
Q: what is the effective difference between using the Debian and Ubuntu distros?
