Thanks for the info, I'll give this a try. My issue was that I could see the network, but was unable to connect beyond just to the local access point. I use the internet from wifi hotspots, so typically I connect to a webpage, log in, and then that grants me access to the outside world.
I was getting the local login prompt, but after putting in my info, I never got the response back. I've seen the same problem reported on the forums, but I didn't see anyone post a clear fix or workaround. I did see one person suggest removing network manager and using a different tool - so I'm also going to get the details on that and give Gutsy one more try.

Some of you have mentioned wifi issues with Gutsy. When I upgraded to
7.10, when I added the Network Manager to my top panel, I noticed that
it did not give me any wireless options, which means that I was not
able to use the gui in order to connect to a wireless network. Not
sure why this was the case since I am assuming that things generally
only get better with upgrades, rather than digress. I was able to
manually connect to wifi with the following:
$ sudo su
$ ifconfig ath0 up
$ iwconfig ath0 essid yourRouterNameHere key routerWepKey
However, now my Network Manager seems to be properly displaying my
wifi networks and allows me to connect/disconnect to/from them as
needed. The only thing that I changed was that I installed wifiradar,
although I have not used it yet. Perhaps there was an update that was
pushed out that solved the Network-Manager issue.
For those of you who stated that you cannot connect to wifi, I wonder
if you mean that your Network Manager is not working properly, or if
you cannot manually connect to wifi using the commands that I listed
