I'm not sure which release of Ubuntu you're running, but you may want to
install one of the following packages:

network-manager-gnome
network-manager-kde

They give you a nice system tray applet that lets you select between wired or
wireless connections, and easily configure your wireless encryption type
(WEP/WPA) and encryption keys.

Cheers
Ash
