Wireless NICs are not Plug and Play in Linux. Before anyone can help you, they will need to know:

--Linux distribution
--Wireless NIC type and chip set
--What you've done so far to try to fix the problem

Look at the output of lsmod to see if anything looks like a wireless interface.

I suspect you will need to download and install the appropriate driver for the wireless NIC.
