Try clicking on network-manager icon in tray (near system clock). You should see all wireless networks around you. Click on your network, wait a few seconds, and enter your WPA-PSK password when asked.

If this doesn't solve your problem, it's possible that you need to enable proprietary driver for your wireless card - System > Administration > Hardware drivers.

Can you help with this problem?
