Mint 12 won't connect to wireless or ethernet

hey guys i am new to this forum but am having a problem that I can't seem to find the answer to on here. I installed mint 12 on my laptop and everything is running fine except that the wireless isn't working. When I first boot up it will located the network and ask for the passkey. I put it in and it says it is connecting but it never will. In the end it says that wireless is unavailable. Any thoughts??

Hello nate88.

Start at these two pages maybe. They should be OK for mint.
