what is your wireless setting in the router?

If anything needs to be changed or adjusted, it will most likely be in the router, not the computer (except for possibly needing proprietary drivers for your wireless card or adapter dongle). I have set up and maintained several large wireless networks, both G and N, and never needed to do anything to any computer running Linux.
Either my wireless card or adapter worked OTB, or I got one that did. I have had excellent results with the ZyDAS ZD 1211B adapter for wireless G and the Cisco Linksys 600N for wireless N. I did need to install the Broadcom proprietary drivers for one older laptop that used a Broadcom wireless card, but that was not a problem. Just hooked up to the router with a cable temporarily and installed via Jockey.
Linux support for wireless network cards and adapters has improved tremendously over the last few years. It is getting to the point where it is difficult to find a card that is not supported.
