    After you "checked" it to use NetworkManager, right click on the NetworkManager icon (in the system tray) to make sure Wireless is "checked", and left click to select the access point.

    I hope that you are not getting too confused. Dapper Dan's request will show if the wireless is working.
    Code:
    /sbin/iwconfig

    I'm not sure what happened but it might have been all the rebooting and updating. I clicked on the network icon and it finally gave me wireless and I logged in. Not getting great reception but it says almost 60%... But it works and I'm logged into it. I noticed over the past few days the repositories have been a little intermittent. Anyway, thanks for all the help, I'm off to tackle the sound issues... talk to you all later.
