This is not necessarily an error.

This is an error.

I don't agree with Karl's approach.
NM is great when WiFi is working.
It just gets in the way if WiFi is not working.

In your case, I would stop NM, and run "service network restart"
(as root), and say "iwconfig".
This will tell you if your card is working.

If it is, look at /var/log/messages in the computer
it is supposed to be connecting to,
and see if there was an attempted link.

If there was, look in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<whatever>
and make sure the entries there are correct.

Also, if you are using dhcp, look at /etc/dhcpd.conf in the target machine.
