Ubuntu 10.04, don't know how to connect to a wireless WEP protected network

I am a complete newbie to Linux. I know it sounds stupid, but how do you connect it to a wireless network. I have windows with it dual booting. I have the little connection status thing on the main panel, but there is a ! on top of it. I also tried the network connections in the menu.

Someone please help.
