    You are to be commended on your patience, having managed a full 9 minutes before bumping.

    Where are you stuck ?

    Have you set the wireless security and settings on the router ?

    Have you got the wireless icon in the notification area, and is your network visible when you left click on it ?

    I'll back up a step or two (perhaps unnecessarily). Does (from a terminal) ifconfig -a show an IP for the adapter? (probably not) What does sudo lshw -C network say about the interface?
