Hi can,

check your devicename.

ifconfig -a

should tell you the device. You will not see an IP.
Then edit your /etc/network/interfaces and add this, assuming your device is 
shown as ath0 and you will want to use dhcp:

iface ath0 inet dhcp
        wireless_mode Managed
        wireless_essid yourssid
        wireless_key YOURKEYHERE
        wireless_keymode open

After this, check, if 

/etc/init.d/networking restart

will get you an IP.

Good luck !
