Kwifi could not obtain an IP address for me neither when the AP had no encryption, I have to go through network manager and highlight the interface in administrator mode and select "configure interface", click on "manual", then back on "auto", and click OK, then click on Apply in the main network manager window for it to get an IP. Then every time after when in range of that network, kwifi links up, but once I go through network manager to set up for another AP when in a different location, settings will now be automatic for the second, not the first AP I configured. You could setup profiles for kwifi and just activate the profile for the AP you are trying to access.
You should also rean man interfaces to see how to setup /etc/network/interfaces
