Your wireless router (or access point) allows you to define what the 
SSID and the type of encrytion you use.  It normally has a web server 
built in which you access from a browser.  You can also define whether 
it publishes this SSID, so that you can pick it up automatically from 
whatever you are trying to connect with.

So access this first and check whether the SSID is being published.  
Your ububtu machine should then be able to see it and connect.
