check the list to make sure the wireless nic is compatible.
once you have the hardware as long as the nic is installed/working properly and the router is up & running, it should automatically detect the wireless network and then give you the option of connecting.

i would recommend using the google search box towards the bottom of the page, and choosing to search linuxcompatible.org for the model of the w-nic youre getting. that would probably be the quickest way of finding out if its on there
