What would prevent Sharepoint from giving any returns during a search? I can go to any library or wiki page within our SharePoint site and search for something I know is there and get zero results repeatedly. Is there a setting or feature I can check to to resolve this?

If there are no items in the index, there will be nothing to return.  First check the obvious, are your crawls completing, and do you have items in your index.  This can be checked in the Search Service App in Central Admin.

Second, it can happen if you in a multi-forest environment, or if you are on a Windows Server 2003 domain functional level.

First thing I'd try is to configure your Search Service App to use claims.
