Question Problems connecting wirelessly with newly installed Fedora 14

Well my first problem was installing the driver, after days of working on it, I finally got the driver to be installed and to be associated with the network adapter. Now the issue is the wireless network adapter won't connect to my wireless network. I am new to Linux, and am trying to get my Fedora 14 to work online, without needing to constantly be wired in (what's the point of having a laptop if you have to be stationary). Anyways my network has WPA2 personal security with a TKIP + AES encryption (I switched it from solely AES because I thought that might have been the issue). Could somebody please help me solve this issue, I've heard a lot of good things about Linux, but so far its been frustrating trying to get this wireless connection working. I am currently taking a course on Linux, and I am using the opportunity to learn about and maybe switch over to a Linux OS which I have heard so much good stuff about in my previous courses. Thank you so much for any assistance you are able to offer me

You might start by telling us what the problem is...

Do you get an error message? Are you able to connect when not using encryption? Do you connect to the AP, but fail to get a working TCP/IP configuration?

There are a lot of things that could go wrong here, so we need to know what the exact situation is.

It seems the issue was that I didn't have the adapter device configured to be controlled by network manager, and wasn't properly working with network manager. Thank you for your reply, I was able to fix this issue.
