Command line tool for connecting/configuring wireles connections? (or independent gui

Okay, so I'm setting up my home server with a TP-WN353G.
I have ndiswrapper installed, and have successfully installed the drivers, I have also used nm-applet (and x forwarding) to configure wireless connections. My problem is that I want to reboot and unplug my wired connection and use just my wireless connection, but when I reboot it doesn't seem to connect to my network.

is there a command line tool or an independent tool that i can launch forwarding x I can use to search for and connect to wifi networks that would also have the ability to save configuration so that when I reboot the system automatically connects to my wifi?

Any other solutions are welcomed as well.

Instead of using network manager, just setup your /etc/network/interfaces file. There are plenty of tutorials on the web.
