Zorin is nice but it's still Debian/Ubuntu. Right now (6/29/12), Zorin 6 is the latest release, so I hope that's what you're using.

That said, be sure to have a wired internet connection and then run the additional drivers (System Tools -> System Settings -> Additional Drivers) to install/activate your WiFi card's driver. Then completely reboot (which should be an option). There may be another way without rebooting but this does seem to be the easiest. Once you're back up you should then be able to edit your wireless connection. Right-click on the network icon in the menu bar (in what you might think if as the system tray), choose "Edit Connections" and then go to the wireless tab to fill out settings like your passphrase, etc. Hopefully, you're at least using a WEP connection although I'd suggest WPA-2. (If not, then please re post with your real name, Visa numbers, social security and DOB - just kidding).
