First Time Wireless Setup

First time linux user, just installed Ubuntu 11.04.

I'm trying to setup my wireless, and i'm not sure what to do.

I found the network connections manager, and i created a new wireless connection and saved it....

what now?

my internet still doesnt work... it says the LAN was last used 20 minutes ago, but i dont have the LAN connected. It says the wireless' "last used" was 'never'

How do i make it connect using the wireless connection i just made?
