How do I connect to a wireless router?


Hey, I just downloaded ubuntu 10.4 today. I can't seem to figure out how to connect to the Internet. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

There should be an icon at the top of screen click on it and enable wireless scroll down on network and enter key.
If that doesn't work post make & model.

Didn't work, says "device not ready (firmware missing)".

I have an HP Touchsmart tx2.
