    Whats up bro, try this:

    Type
    ~$ifconfig

    If your wifi adapter (probably wlan0 or ath0) does not say "UP BROADCAST MULTICAST"
    then it is not on.

    In that case try
    ~$/etc/init.d/networking start

    then check your connections again with the "ifconfig" command. (iwconfig does not give you as much information)

    Assuming that is now working:
    go to dragon icon --> Internet --> Wicd Network Manager
    There you can see what networks you wifi can connect to, as well as enter the password for the desired network.

    Good Luck!
