Oracle Enterprise Linux 5, wireless card is active but does not connect.

Hi All,,,,,
I have Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 installed and Intel wifi 5100 card installed on my laptop. Wireless card does not work in Linux it works fine with Vista, I have dual boot. I have downloaded and installed the microcode for the wireless card for Linux,,,it is now active but it does not take ip address from dhcp and nor does it connect when i supply manual ip. it does not even scan for any wireless network. I have WEP enabled on my wireless network. It just says disconnected.....
Please help me.....i have been trying to get this thing work for 3 weeks.
