Help find GFCI problem

Got everything wired up inside the building. Next is runnign service wire fromt he sub panel to my house. Anyway, all outlets on the wall
are on one 20 amp circuit. The first on near the panel starts the circuit and is a GFCI. The rest are ran off and protected by that GFCI.
Ceiling outlets are wired to a switch. Two circuits come from the panel to the switch. These are on a regular 20 amp breaker. They will be replaced with a GFCI breaker.
ANyway, I wanted to make sure everythign workied so I wired some leftover 10-3 wire to my panel. On the other end I wired a plug. I pluged this into an extension cord to my house GFCI outlet. (About 40 feet away.).
Ceilign outlets and lights work great! Switch works.
However I cant get the wall outlets to work. On my GFCI the outlet green led light stays lit properly, but no tools work when pluged into the outlet, also I cant get voltage on any of the outlets when I check with a voltmeter. Does the green light indicate it is getting power and everything is connected correctly? I only had a minute this mornign to work with it but It does not look like the GFCI is tripped but I cant be 100% sure until I get home.
If there is somethign tripping the GFCI is there a good way of checkign without having to undo all the electrical outlets?
I appreciate any help!

Did you try pressing the reset button?

It is a simple matter to verify that you are getting voltage directly at the output terminal of the GFCI. If that is ok then the fault lies in your wiring.
