I finally found a solution after 2 months of doing research, just to help others out, this is where I found what I needed:
My purpose was to connect to a neighbors wireless internet connection, and put it onto my router, basically as a wireless repeater.
D-Link Router (could be any)
Following the above links instructions I was able to automatically connect to the wireless connection without network manager (just static since his router name never changes, and I'm a desktop).
After everything was setup, my D-Link was repeating my neibors wireless connection...
Hope this helps!
