    Hello and Welcome!

    What version of Linux are you running?
    Also, please post the output of ifconfig -a and iwconfig

    Also, dmesg | grep firmware

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    Couldn't figure out how to do the dmesg | grep firmware. Thanks for the help! I'm very new to Linux. Oh yea I'm on 11.04.

    Looks like everything is loading up properly. What happens when you try to connect to a wireless network?
    Also does your computer have a on/off toggle switch for wireless?

    From your post earlier:
    Code:
    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:cf:cc:2f:b3
    BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
    That's your wireless card. Open up a terminal and execute the following command: iwlist wlan0 scan
    You should get a list of available wireless networks.

    kyle@kyle-ME051:~$ iwlist wlanO scan
    wlanO Interface doesn't support scanning.

    kyle@kyle-ME051:~$ iwlist wlan0 scan
    wlan0 Failed to read scan data : Network is down

    I'm not familiar with the Unity interface that Ubuntu 11.04 is using, but do you have an icon for network options? Should be in the top right corner. If you right-click on it, is there an option to Enable Wireless?
