KDE password management - really could use help!

Ok, so I recently installed KDE 3.5 on my Debian testing, GNOME system. I installed kde-core and kde-desktop. After using it for some time I decided that I rather use it, then GNOME. So I moved GNOME, or at least most of it to my knowledge.

Now I just restarted my computer and I have no internet connection. I added the wireless monitor to the panel and it shows I'm connected.

I think what happen was I removed from stuff form startup of, klipper, and
kwallet. Now I'm guessing I need to reconfigure one of these to allow me to get give me wireless privileges. So if this is the case how would I go about doing this?

Could someone help me out here?

You need to find the Administration control centre (not the one to customise your desktop) and go to the network settings.

So I moved GNOME
Can you re-phrase please!
It is possible you once had a properly configured system whose configuration files were in Gnome applications......that "may" not be around anymore?. Which means you may need to install some necessary packages to configure a wireless connection in KDE, like network-manager and knetworkconf. Once you re-establish a connection, add a "auto ethx" to the appropriate interface section of /etc/network/interfaces file, replace the (x) with what is appropriate.
