Open a terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal, if you are using Gnome) and type:
sudo iwlist wlan0 scanSubstitute your wireless interface, if it's not wlan0.

May I assume you are really trying to connect using Network Manager? Here is a guide on how to use it: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NetworkManager
