heron will not connect to wifi

In network manager there is not even a listing for wireless.

I tried to followthe directions on a couple of pages and still no go.

Here is what I know and what I have so far.

There is no black list.

Terminal command ran /sbin/ifconfig

next I looked for the chipset

Terminal command to find chipset “lspci | less”

Next i looked to see if my stuff was detected

Terminal command: “sudo lshw”
