AP?

If I use the cable I can reach internet, but I need also wireless to be able to work in another part of the house.

I also tried it with wicd, but got a other problem with that
Code:
libnotify-Message: Unable to get session bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

Could not initalize pynotify
Has notifications support False
Loading...
Connecting to daemon...
Can't connect to the daemon, trying to start it automatically...
Wicd daemon is shutting down!
