ubuntu wireless connectivity problems

I've looked all over other forums trying to solve my wireless connectivity problem with ubuntu 12.04 but cant find a solution. my connection is recognized but won't connect. yes the password is correct. Things I've tried:

1. Update manager, kernel is up to date.
2. Ndis wrapper
3. checking my chipset for linux support(qualcomm atheros ar9285)
4. at least two others I cant remember.

I feel there is an easy fix for this, but my forum searches have turned up empty. Once I get wireless connectivity my windows days will be behind me. I appreciate any help, cheers.

"lspci" will show the type network controller card that you have. That will tell whether or not you will need ndiswrapper or not. please post that!
