Wi-Fi Problem

I am from my office Renfos Technologies. here wireless internet is provided and I am able to use it with my laptop with windows 7 operating system. But I tried to do everything I have by taking the networking connections and all in ubuntu 9.04. it is an presario v3000 laptop. i feel like ubuntu is asking me questions out of reason. why or what should i have to do to get the wifi activated. in windows it only asked me the password for access and it is only needed to provide for a single time. then it will get automatically activated. i love ubuntu, but certain things like this is distracting me. i am the only linux user in this company.

Can you provide more information about your network? How do you connect in windows?
Is the wifi card detected in Ubuntu?
I can connect to wireless network in my office without any issues. If you have got the WEP or WPA encryption then you will need to set it up accordingly before you can connect.
