This is the first time i've ever used linux and i'm pretty clueless. The restricted driver thing popped up tellin me that it had restricted drivers for my wireless card, i turned them on and i didn't see anything about wireless in the network manager. I typed dmesg in the terminal and this is what came up for my wireless adapter.

"[ 35.158694] ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
[ 35.170147] ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)

I'd be ridiculously happy if anyone could tell me anything about it.

Do a search for the Atheros AR5413 chipset as I believe thats what that card is running. Looking up the chipset would be your best bet to get your card running or let you know whether you need to get a new wireless card that supports Linux.
