Everyone is learning something new so don't feel alone J05HUA.
I don't mean to get all philosophical on you but you should try not convincing yourself and the world that you're an idiot. What one speaks with one's mouth and thinks with one's mind becomes reality. That's probably the best advice I can give you at this stage.
Another thing... if you have a problem with a particular tutorial, you should post your question in the related thread. That way you're more likely to get specific help related to that particular problem.
Remember... you're not wasting anyone's time, because whoever helps you is not by your force but by their choice.
Lastly... those GUI Wireless Assistants suck, suck, suck. Use CLI Command Line Interface, ie. iwconfig, ifconfig etc.
