to get started I have a gateway t6321 and with intel 3945 wireless card and so far nothing is working at all. I have tried so many diffrent ways to get this working and could see the card on wlan0 with iwconfig but network manager shows no wireless networks. I can confirm theres nothing wrong with the router. If anyone could give me some insight that would be great thanks.

After the three days of messing with this computer I tried another wireless card and still no luck, I than installed windows vista and nothing there either. I just bought this laptop referbed and that was the problem. I opened the computer and found that the wireless on off switch was broken from the inside. So This issue has been solved for me. I was able to turn the wireless switch on from the inside and I'm just going to use the Fn f2 key.
