No secret. I selected the network, followed through the panels and
plugged in the key and it just worked.

Where? Where do you select WPA-PSK? Where do you enter the shared key?
Those options do not appear in my installed version of knetworkmanager.
Which gui are you using for it? KDE3/4/Gnome?

1) Create a new connection and click on the SSID, then Next.
2) Verify "Use Wireless Security" and "WPA Personal" are selected.
Enter key and click on "Connect and Save".
3) Done

I have done the above on two computers and at least 5 access points. It
always works for me.

I just realised that you are definitely not using KDE4's knetworkmanager (at
least, not the same version as I'm using). No "connect and save" button - just
OK and Cancel. Wireless Security is a tab, not a checkbox and the option is
WPA/WPA2 Personal but it asks for a password, not a pre-shared key.

Like I said, the knetworkmanager is broken (or perhaps functionally challenged
is a more apt description).

What gui interface to Network Manager are you using?
