You can manually configure a wireless network. Go to System settings--> network--> Press + symbol to add new network select wireless tab and you can configure wireless connection by providing all details it ask you to give. If you didn't understand me, follow this link. This method needs to install wicd using which you can configure more easily "". All instructions are given.
