    You did type sudo didn't you? This elevates you to root for the command that follows and asks for your password.

    Big tip:

    Copy commands from the forum webpage and use ctrl+shift+V to paste them into terminal.

    Copy stuff from terminal - highlight with mouse and copy with ctrl+shift+C, paste into forum with ctrl+V.

    Did it work?

    Did you reboot?

    After rebooting run the cat command again and make sure they all say true.

    Sometimes I have had to do this a few times (edit, save, reboot).

    Try it a couple more times, just in case. Also this may work, does for some, but never has for me:

    Code:
     
    sudo service network-manager stop
    sudo rm /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state
    sudo service network-manager start
    Other than that I am stumped.

    Final thought, does the wireless work if you boot of the live CD?
