@Ioannis and Jose

Well, I can't even do anything right now on the Network Manager :D
I can't disable/Enable, I can't click Edit, nothing is working and I don't
know what is going on?
Whatever I click on, it does not work.

To answer this Q:
*Do you see the wireless network(s) that are available, and just can't
connect, or you see no wireless networks at all?*

Yes. I see the list of the Wireless Networks :)
Everything is there and listed.

Whenever I click to my Wireless Network to connect, the Indicator Applet
Icon will be changed showing the progress of trying to connect to a
wireless network but nothing is moving on, it does not connect and I'm
still connected ONLY to my wired connection.

I have a Wireless USB Adapter:

       description: Wireless interface
       physical id: 1
       bus info: usb at 1:1
       logical name: wlan1
       serial: 00:1f:1f:a8:e5:21
       capabilities: ethernet physical wireless
       configuration: broadcast=yes driver=rt2800usb
driverversion=3.5.0-27-generic firmware=0.29 link=no multicast=yes
wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn

Now, because nothing is responding on the Network Manager, I can't do

I need to increase my Networking Skills (System Wise) and learn more
commands in order to track this issue and try to fix it.

Never mind guys, I will do my digging and come back if I fail to find
anything ;)
