Welcome to the forum
First, please take a look at the instructions here,
under "Wireless," to see if Kubuntu needs a driver for your adapter. If one is already installed, the program that may help you set up a connection is called something like "Network Management Settings" or "Network Manager." You can perform a search in Kubuntu for this application as I have no idea where it's located. If this does not solve the problem, please continue below...
Open a terminal and post the results of the following commands...
lspci -nnk | grep -i net -A2
If your wireless adapter is usb, then...
Also, what is the brand and model of your computer and what version of Kubuntu are you using?
