seahorse is the application you want to launch.
Press alt + f2 and type "gksudo seahorse"
add a wireless password to the keyring. I might be wrong though, I'm
not home to test it.
You can always set it up in the /etc/network/interfaces
google "etc network interfaces wireless" to learn more. When I get
home I'll double check this.
