Hi

i'm a complete novice with linux and have absolutely no idea what i'm doing :L

i have installed my wireless card and the drivers are working fine, but it can't seem to connect to any networks, when i first put it in it connected automatically and worked fine, but i then turned it off and when it came back on it wouldn't let me connect to any networks.

i also don't have gnome network manager on my taskbar.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be wrong? Or know anything i could do in terminal to sort it out? Or could it just be i'm too far away from the router?

many thanks, gaz
