I don't know about KDE, but Gnome uses nm-applet by default. Do you get
any kind of network icon on the top panel by doing ALT+F2 -> nm-applet ?

Sometimes when using wireless in Awesomewm on my T60, I have to left click the
nm-applet icon and check "Enable Wireless" even though I never disabled
it. Don't ask me why. Worth a try?

And then of course, there's that time when I spent several days trying to get
wireless to work on my fresh Ubuntu install before realizing the
physical switch in front was off... :-)

BTW, thinkwiki.org has tons of Ubuntu-specific info for Thinkpad Users.
Lots of tips and goodies there!

Default WiFi Issue

I'm very familiar with Thinkwiki, I love it

My desktop (with the wifi issue) has no switch on it, just the laptop.* I'll try the nm-aplet tonight.

Oh, and I also tried rebooting--worth a shot, no?* I thought so
