    It looks like you already knew this, but this is your wireless:
    Code:
    01:11.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212/AR5213 Multiprotocol MAC/baseband processor [168c:0013] (rev 01)
    And this is the driver:
    Code:
    ath5k                 108873  0

    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. ..........

    Here's some instructions for setting up this card.

    EDIT: Sorry, wrong link. Look down the page a little farther for the caveats

    not sure how to respond to this, kinda looks a little out of my league. Are these commands that are run at the terminal and should I be in a specific directory when I do?

    Been out fishing. Y'all have been busy! Hopefully waterhead's link has got you sorted. If not, I'd like to see the results of:
    Code:
    /sbin/iwconfig
    See if "mode" is set to "managed" or ad-hoc." If managed, you should be good regardless of the error. If not, see what happens when you do:
    Code:
    /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode managed

    There is another way to connect. I use the NetworkManager applet. In the main menu open System-->Services and put a check next to NetworkManager and NetworkManagerDispatcher. Click the start arrow for each one, and save the configuration.

    There now should be a NetworkManager icon in the system tray. Right-click on it and put a check in the box for Enable Wireless. Now if you left click it should show you the available networks. Click on the one you want to connect to, and enter the needed info.

    I hope this works for you.

    ok, that was easy but it doesn't show the wireless just the wired connections. I have dual GB Lan onboard. Still no wireless. Maybe I should reboot........

    We can never believe any thing you say anymore. Everyone knows that all fishermen are liars!

    Actually, I've been doin' some internet fishin'. The instructions on my link are rather fuzzy. Others have succeeded using your commands. Here are a few more.
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid <essid_name>
    iwconfig wlan0 key s:xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Umm... Have you configured the wireless device in the System-->Network section? Highlight the device and click edit. Check boxes that the device is controlled by NetworkManager, and automatic IP address (also automatic DNS). You can also change settings on the other tabs.
