SLES 11 wireless network connection

Hi, I was going to post this in the enterprise forum but I am only using it at home, the question is simple anyway..

I am using SLES 11 SP2 and just configured the wireless network card but where or how on earth do I actually connect to my wireless router? In the Network Settings window it lists, under the overview tab, Ethernet Network Card and PRO/WIRELESS with the options to add/edit/delete down the bottom. How do I actually connect to the wireless network?
I know the answer will be obvious but I only just installed it and cannot for the life of me figure it out.

I checked the website and looking at a deployment guide it says that if you are using a wireless connection just click the DHCP check box when setting up the wireless card and you are done. I have done that but that doesn't seem to be working.
