How do I connect wirelessly to the internet in Ubuntu?

October 22, 2011 – 4:00 pm

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 alongside Windows Vista and I can connect to the internet wirelessly in Vista but not in Ubuntu. It displays the hotspots, and I select mine and type in the WEP key, and it tries to connect but after about a minute it displays the dialogue box which requires me to enter the WEP key again. After doing this several time it fails to connect. I checked and it recognises my wireless device. How do I make it work?
