Help! can't connect to wireless...can't find a solution

Hey guys....I hope someone can help me solve this problem ...

I've just installed windows7 home premium on my hubbys laptop (over linux ubuntu after some great help from a sevenforums member )

But now I can't for the life of me work out how to connect to our wireless broadband. We've got 3 laptops, 2 pc's, an xbox, Wii, & PS3 all connected...but I can't get this laptop to connect.

I've just spent the last half hour searching for info but nothing has helped so far....
Does anyone have any suggestions....please???

Kind regards
Shirley :)

ps...just in case it has a Marvell Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller

Don't worry...I worked it out myself
Plugged in the cable from my main computer (it recognised that connection) and then made it search for the wireless connection....found it right away
