WPA doesn't work

I am using ubuntu edgy.  I currently use Gnome as my desktop and my wireless works flawlessly.  I have WPA enabled and I used the network manager applet.  When I switch to xfce, my wireless no longer works.  In fact, I am unable to get network manager to work at all.

I am not stuck on the network manager applet.  If some other method would enable my WPA I would be thrilled.  How can I get wpa wireless to work?

Thanks in advance...

Not Xfce related, but you can always try Google.

Its because nm-applet doesn't load on startup,  like it does for Gnome and KDE.
I can run nm-applet  manually from a terminal and get internet up and working, but thats the only solution I've come up with thus far....

Once you close out the terminal, so does nm-applet,  so I have no clue how to load it on startup in XFCE like it does for Gnome and KDE I have no clue at all on that.

Also, WONFIX, doesn't come up with any search results in Google, nothing linux related anyway.
