If you don't like network manager, it's possible to uninstall it 
entirely. It should anyway ignore any already-configured networks.

In Debian/Ubuntu, edit:  /etc/network/interfaces and add:

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
     wpa-ssid YOUR-SSID-HERE

Then just ifup/ifdown wlan0.

wpa-supplicant will keep this network up for weeks at a time, if it can.

It gets a bit more complicated when moving around between networks 
though. HTH,
