With version it is impossible to change the security settings of the wireless connection since in the kde applet no security mode (WEP,WPA, etc) is present.
Moreover the signal strenght is not recognised and also te encryption method is reported in a wrong way (WEP instead of WPA-PSK).
However the connection is correctly established.
Using the previous version of networkmanager ( bothe the signal strenght and encryption method are reported and is possible to change the security settings selecting betwen WEP, WPA and so on.
My wireless card is an intel ipw2100.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
