    do in konsole
    "nm-tool"
    do you see in the section "wireless access points" your router?

    If you see you're router then you must go to "knetworkmanager"
    (icoon in the right bottom, if installed and used KDE)
    and add new access --> wlan --> auto refresh ON --> wait a moment ;-)

    disable WEP or WPA on the accesspoint, and try to connect
