    Does your wifi net have security installed? WPA, etc? If so, remove the security and see if you can connect.

    I had could see my wifi but no connection. After removing security, I could connect.

    After hours of playing with this, I decided to remove and reinstall the Atheros drivers on my T-61. All is well and good now and we have a secure wifi connection.

    Which network card are you using? I have a R61 laptop with the intel 4965AGN network card. I can not connect to a network secured with WPA. How did you enable your connection?

    its my girlfriends old computer, not laptop. there isn't any security on the wireless, I'm connected to it right now on my phone. I'm not sure what the wireless card is since the computer wsnt originally mine. it worked with with version 7.10 though.

    open a termimal and type "lspci" to know witch wifi card you have. then search over internet and this forum, you may have to use madwifi or nidwrapper as driver.
