Wireless Not Working in Ubuntu 10.10


So, I have finally made my way back to Linux after a long hiatus playing mmorpgs on Windows. I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP Compaq Presario CQ50. I cannot get my wireless adapter to work. I have enable my wireless but I still cannot connect with to any wireless networks. Any help would be accepted.

    WE will need information about the wireless chipset and drivers being used. Also have you checked the output of dmesg to see what is loading or locate any errors?

    I have figured this problem out. rf-kill was blocking my wireless adapter.
