    You may need to install and set up wpa_supplicant to use encryption. First try what amadain said, and try it with encryption turned off.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    Are networkmanager and networkmanagerdispatch running? If not, start them through System > Administration > Services. Tick the boxes, select each one and select restart. See if that helps. There will then be an icon in the upper right panel. Click the icon to see wireless networks.
