Kubuntu, Ubuntu.....Whats the Difference in Hardware Drivers?

Hey,
 I was running Ubuntu 10.4 on a netbook. I decided to give the KDE a try. Well after the restart the nice Kubuntu Desktop Environment sprang into action but now my wireless card isnt working. It was working just fine in Ubuntu. Since this is just a desktop upgrade I cant imagine it having any effect on hardware functionality.  Anyway, when thumbing my way through the KDE, I'm new to it, I realized I cant even find a way to configure my network adapters. I honestly cant tell if the wireless card is on or not because I cant find where any wireless networks are being broadcast.  Where in the KDE can you see wireless networks?

You can install network manager
sudo apt-get install knetworkmanager

Open in new window

or manually edit /etc/network/interfaces

Ok I went to Network Manager and all my network adapters were enabled, including the wireless. I have searched everywhere in Kubuntu and cannot find where I can configure wireless networks, or where I can even see them. I can use the onboard NIC for a hard line connection but I cannot even find any properties for that connection. ?
