PCLinuxOS wireless connection issue! Help anyone?

Hi all,

I'm a new Linux user, and recently installed PCLinuxOS MiniME 2008 on my old laptop as a dual-boot with Windows XP.

I got it installed and up and running fairly easily... except for one issue.

You see, PCLOS detects my wireless network and even lets me hit "connect" for it... but when I open Konqueror to view a web page or try to download updates for an application, it won't load.

Apparently, I'm not connected!

So... to conclude... PCLOS detects my wireless hardware, detects the network... but won't connect to it.
