Probably you don't see your wireless lamp on either.

If your wireless is a broadcom 43xx then install the "b43-fwcutter" app 
from the repository.  It will pull the firmware out of your wireless 
chip and set up  it up.  Reboot and your lamp will come on, and then you 
can probably install the "Network-Manager" widget (if it is not already 
installed) and use it to scan for, locate and configure your wireless.
