The network card is a new Asus PCE-N13 802.11b/g/n
When in the "Network Connections" windows. i can select enable. Then is says "Enabling.." then "Enabled!"
But yet, Still in that same window, Its disabled and shown in gray.

Do you have a wireless router? Is the wireless network setup? The security type must be the same on all machines on the net...and the workgroup name must match also....

Well, I have two home routers. Both setup.

But i cannot even get to that step. The network card will not enable, so i cannot even use.
