I figured it out.  I copied my etc/network/interfaces file from my desktop to 
the laptop and everything worked again.  One problem I noticed though is if I 
manually edit the network through K>systemsettings>networksettings the 
interfaces file changes and then the wireless disappears.
here is my interfaces file:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
#iface eth1 inet dhcp

auto eth2
#iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto ath0
#iface ath0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
#iface wlan0 inet dhcp
