Please help me connect to wireless network.

Ubuntu Hardy. The Wireless card does not seem to start.
- I boot up Ubuntu
- Wireless network does not connect (It did connect a few days ago)
- I click on the Network icon, no wireless networks are listed
- The Icon is a little picture of a PC
- If I click on the Network icon it only gives me tho option to "manually configure". There are no wireless networks to connect to.
- Manually configure is set to Roaming.

This is a dual boot computer. The wireless card works with Windows.

Please help,

Thank you

The problem fixed itself. What I did (thanks to your question):
- Boot up in Ubuntu
- Connect to Internet with a wire
- Boot up in Windows
- Boot up in Ubuntu (now wireless card starts up)
- Enter Router password (pick 128-bit HEX option)


The wireless card had been working fine. The only thing I have done different in the last few days is that I have been accessing public internet hotspots at coffee shops. Maybe that caused the problem.
