How to connect to wireless network


I can detect the wireless network and everything, I have all the info, but I dont know how to connect. Can someone tell me the commands to do so? Im not a big fan of apps that do it for me so the commands will do. Thanks

oh ya, Im using the new Ubuntu Dapper if there are specific commands for it

That doesnt quite work, I do that and get no error, but Im still not connecting. My machine is an HP Zv6130us, it has the Broadcom 4318 wireless card, and I am using the bcm43xx drivers. Im not sure what else to do

The network manager doesnt work either as suggested in another forum, it is an open network with no password, the icon says connecting but it never does, eventually it stops and returns to the not connected symbol. I am using the bcm43xx drivers for the broadcom 4318. I can scan and use airodump, but not connect to the router.

The following appears in dmesg when I try to connect using the network manager:

bcm43xx: FATAL ERROR: BCM43xx_IRQ_XMIT_ERROR
