if you need more info, just let me know.

Two things that suppress wireless come to mind.

Does iwconfig show a wireless device? If not, you may be missing the necessary firmware. Check the output of dmesg to see if there are any messages regarding missing firmware.

Does "rfkill list" show anything blocked?
