Have you checked the /etc/network/interfaces file? It needs to have the ESSID of the router you're trying to connect to and the WEP key if you're using WEP security.

It's usually a lot easier to first turn off all security on the router and see if you can connect. If so, then all the issues are related to the security settings.

This may get you pointed in the right direction:

You might try lsmod to see what modules are being loaded. You only want ONE module running for the wireless NIC.

There is a Wireless Networking forum here if your main issue is Wifi.

Good luck.
