That's just not true.
Network manager (type "nm-applet"), WICD, etc. run just as well in LXDE as in Gnome, Xfce, etc.
Of course if you just installed "vanilla" LXDE yourself, then yes, you will want to add nm-applet etc. to your startup apps. but if you are using a "real" LXDE distro most of them have GUI wireless out-of-the-box.
