a problem enabling wifi on netbook running ubuntu 10.4

I used to have no problems with the wifi on my Acer One netbook. After a friend played with the network configurations, the wifi is disabled.
I have no idea what he did (and neither does he...)
I gathered some info, and hope you can help.

I tried it, but got a message that nm-applet is already running. I killed (-9) nm-applet and typed nm-applet& from the console and got in return:
DEBUG: old state indicates that this was not a disconnect 0
