What kind of wireless dongle is it?

Manufacturer, model number, is it USB etc....

We can't help unless we know that.

Hi, all I can do is point you to these links and wish you good fortune - it seems you may have to look under the hood.

Take this with a grain of salt because I'm a noob 2.

Have you tried to restart your computer with the dongle plugged in?

Yes, first try to restart it.
If it doesn't work, which would be my guess, install the b43 driver : http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43.
