I have network manager installed, i even reinstalled it, and it still doesn't seem to work right. It sees wired network but not wireless, maybe i am not useing it correctly, i do see a signal strength up in the upper right, which when i open gives me some network into, i can click configure and then i can see my network configuration setting to which i can click on configure of my wireless device and then i can see a drop down list of networks in the area, but there is only a spot for a wep key, and WPA doesn't work.

As this is getting way off topic, i am going to start a new thread in the noob section, but thanks to everyone here since i at least could connect by altering the interface file and wpa_supplicant.conf,
