Install the correct driver for your wireless NIC (if not already present)
Configure wireless settings including security.

You can look at the output of the lspci to find the wireless hardware description and see if the card is being detected.

Also if you can post the output of ifconfig and iwconfig, that will help us determine the current status.

No one can help you with the minimal amount of information you have provided.
