    Could you provide a little more information?
    Did your wireless work previously? Could you give some info on your hardware? Is there a hardware switch for your wireless card?

    My wireless works fine with others distros I have on my computer.
    I'm using a Dell Latitude E6400 and it does have a switch, and it's on

    My usb wireless stick is card 2 and is working just fine in wpa security mode. Kinda hard to guess till you post some kind of readouts like from here.

    $ cat /etc/resolv.conf
    # Generated by NetworkManager
    domain Belkin
    search Belkin
    nameserver 192.168.x.x
    Since this is a desktop. I have no need for

    ~$ apt-cache policy rfkill
      Installed: (none)
      Candidate: 0.4-1
      Version table:
         0.4-1 0
            500 unstable/main i386 Packages
    But it may behoove you to install it and run it to show if anything in switches or bios is hard blocking wireless since you have a laptop.

    rfkill - Linux Wireless
