Cannot connect even though Wireless card is sending/receiving


I finally got MADWifi set up, then finally managed to get ath0 showing that it is sending and receiving in the Netconf Connection monitor. But how do I actually connect? My WEP key is all set up, but when I try to set up a Wireless connection it still asks for a Manual Choice only, no option to use ath0. I only get that option in LAN or ADSL connection.
Please someone help me.
