I see nothing obvious that indicates a wireless card is installed in your laptop?
Are you dual booting windows and is the card detected and working?
Is it enabled in the BIOS. Is there are mechanical power switch and is it on?

This is not a dual boot system, there is a FN F2 to enable the wireless card but it does not seem that will work with this operating system. the computer originally ran Windows XP and all worked fine.

OK, I opened up the back to make sure the wireless card was still in there, and guess what, LOL, it is there but was not plugged in all the way, so no it looks like it is seeing the wireless card but I still can't connect....
