Do you have a network manager icon on the top panel, left of the speaker icon? Right-click it, select "Edit connections," Wireless tab, Add, enter your router's SSID, then fill in the security tab.

"Doesn't work" provides no information people can use to help you. "I expected ABC but saw XYZ instead," lets us know how far you got.
