Ummm, That's kind of a vague post, no worries though. What kind of wireless card do you have? Do you mean there are no available networks in network manager? Or can you not connect to a particular network? Was your wireless card previously working in LM6 (or another distro)?

I encountered this, and solution was to get new kernel.

do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

that fixed for me
Best regards,
