I installed WICD. I can see all the wireless networks, and wired works fine, but everytime I try connecting to a wireless network it says, "Unable to get IP"

Can someone help me remedy this? I am very new to ubuntu so I have no idea how to do anything...

When I go to Network Tools, I see:
Network Device: Loopback interface
IPv6 - Ip Address: ::1, Netmask: 128, Scope: Host
Network Device: wlan0
IPv6 - IP Address ::, Netmask 0, Scope Unknown
IPv4 - IP 0.0.0.0, Netmask 0.0.0.0

Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
