Wifi on Toshiba Satellite A105 in Ubuntu

My hard drive just recently became terminally corrupted, so I had to wipe it and start over. I installed Ubuntu 6.06 on my Toshiba Satellite A105, and everything seems to be going smoothly. However, I can not for the life of me figure out how to utilize the laptop's built-in wifi. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance,

Update: I fixed it. Sorry... I had to fiddle around with the Networking dialog box from the Administration menu. Basically is was taking the WEP key as ASCII even though it was set for hex. I switched it to ASCII, applied, then switched back to hex, and now it works. I think this was simply a little burp.

Thanks anyway!
