Ok, so it looks like NetworkManager is preventing you from manually connecting using iwconfig, so you will either have to use NetworkManager or uninstall it and use the network tool.
I hate that ubuntu does this.
Now, we have to figure out why NetworkManager isn't picking up your wireless card correctly.
I am on my ubuntu computer in my garage now, but am attempting to remove NetworkManager completely so I may be in-and-out so to speak. I will look around to see what I can find in a few though. All I can tell you right now is to get on google and do some searching for "Network Manager Intel 2915 Ubuntu" and that may get you somewhere.

This is what Network manager says with the land line plugged in. I cant pull this up though with the land line disconnected because connection information becomes greyed out the minute I disconnect land line.
