    Assuming you have your wifi card working, the easiest way nin my opinion is to install wpa_supplicant and networkmanager/nm-applet

    wpa_supplicant will look after your encryption and NetworkManager gives a nice interface and an automatic setup for it.

    You are on Kubuntu ?

    The package is network-manager-kde, you can install it from synaptic.
