    Could you give us a little more information?

    Your wireless card model perhaps? The kind of encryption your network is using? The driver you are using for this card?

    Are you able to ping anything?

    What is the output of
    Code:
    iwconfig
    ?

    It says right there that you are not connected.

    What are you using to connect?
