Click the applet in the panel and select a network to connect to. It will ask for the details as it tries to connect.

Without knowing how you've set up your wireless router it is impossible to comment. The router should already be connected to the internet and you normally use a shared key to connect your computer to the router. If the connection has been made, then you can edit the connection by right clicking the applet in the panel. F14 has a network connections applet just to the left of the date in the top panel.

Well in my country, a wireless hotspot requires that you open your browser and you will be directed to a page where you enter your user name and password. If you had mentioned this in the beginning we would have this sorted by now. Are you sure this is wireless, or is this 3G ?
