When youclick Refresh network list, then Choose yourwireless network and then click Connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network, configuringthe wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Since when did you install the update, if you can uninstall it please do so, or you can try to do some system restore.

If you need the manual,
The instructions for connecting to a wireless network is under the "wireless local area network" instructions.

Chcek if there's a wifi switch and if it's turned on. Try going to a wifi hotspot and see if your system can detect any wireless networks. If not, uninstall and reinstall your wireless drivers.
