Wireless Setup Problems in 64 Studio on a Gateway T-1625

I should preface this by saying I am completely new to Linux. I chose 64 Studio as my distribution (I am using version 3.0 beta 3) because the primary purpose of this computer is for audio production. That and the internet.

I had followed some instructions I had found online using NDISwrapper. I am dual booting 64 Studio with the RC of the 64 bit Windows 7 so it was easy enough to point NDISwrapper to the drivers on the Windows partition. At first it seemed like it was going to work, when I typed "iwlist scan" into the terminal it listed all the wireless networks in my area. Before I could figure out how to connect to my wireless network in the terminal my screen began to show static, not unlike an old TV using rabbit ears with bad reception. To fix the video I chose the correct drivers from the Synaptic Package Manager and restarted my computer.

Upon startup the display was working but the Network Settings manager no longer recognizes my computer having a wireless option. When I type "iwlist scan" it tells me the interface doesn't support scanning. And now when I restart my computer several network errors flash on the screen right before it shuts down. The Wireless Network Drivers screen that goes along with NDISwrapper still shows the correct Windows drivers and says the hardware is present. I'm lost on what to do next. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
