Netbook won't connect to internet (SOLVED)

I got a little netbook on Peppermint 9 and just can’t figure out how to get to the network manager to connect it. Usually netbooks and laptops automatically have a box that pops up and starts searching for the wi fi. This does not happen.

Down by the clock (bottom/right of screen) you’ll see a wireless network icon … normal left-click it, and you should see a list of available wireless networks … click YOUR network, and you’ll be prompted for the wireless key … enter it and click “Connect” … you should now be connected.

Thanks Mark- done that.

So is this (SOLVED) ?

Sorry Mark- I had to pop out to the shops and hurry back as had visitors so forgot.
