I don´t think that this will be solved with the installation of wicd because it means that there is no driver for your wirless device present.
And because of this: What is the type of wireless Huh?
Now it´s time to go to

G'day Chris
 Try this: open a terminal  ( konsole will do) ,on the command line type "dmesg | less ".
This gives you a screenful of information , including hardware.
If you don't know what you are looking at , then type this ( both cases ,do not include the " " )
"dmesg > text.txt". You can then  include that (text.txt ) in your next message.

This means it complying to this standard but it does not say which type of wireless device is installed.
Open a konsole and give the command
Code:

It's some here to:
http://forums.techguy.org/networking/633544-having-problem-hp-pavilion-wireless.html

I used a Dell laptop one time and the wireless stop working. I spent a day to figure out why, go in at every system and network settings avaible but nothing worked..

It was a button at the keyboard that disable the wireless function.
Someone or myself probaly had touch it by mistake.

But was not easy to find that out.

This means that either the driver is not loaded or not present in the kernel.
And the later I don´t expect (unless the Pardus kernel-builders did forget it).
Investigation continues.....

rtl8192ce (supported devices)

    Supports PCI-E devices based on the RTL8188CE and RTL8192CE chipsets.

And Pardus has

atolboo@pardus2011 ~ $ uname -r
2.6.37.6
This means (by default) it's not present in the current kernel of Pardus.
It should be present somewhere in /lib/modules/2.6.37.6/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
Now I am going to investigate if it can be build on the spot.
But now I know where to look (=rtl8192ce) for.
Investigation continues after
