How to configure SMC EZ-Connect usb wifi stick into Ubuntu

My current distro is xubuntu 8.10, but it could be apply to
an older xubuntu 8.04, kubuntu, and ubuntu distributions:

1. Install ubuntu
2. Install ndiswrapper from cd instalation folder. Click over this two files:
“/pool/main/n/ndiswrapper-common_1.50-1ubuntu1_all.deb” and
3. Copy your “.inf” file from SMC driver CD to a local folder.
4. Type this into console (changing your name and driver name, of course):
ndiswrapper -i /home/user_name/xxxxx.inf
ndiswrapper -mi
5. NOTE: You could be use ndisgtk also, and remember that if your ubuntu
runs at 64bit you need the 64 bit driver (xp64 for example).
6. Type sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
7. Copy and paste this into file:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
pre-up ifconfig wlan0 up
pre-up iwconfig wlan0 essid WLAN_20
pre-up iwconfig wlan0 key s:’C1131DA6BFB21′

8. NOTE: Change ‘WLAN_20′ to your wireless name and ‘C1131DA6BFB21′ to your WEP password.
9. Save file changes and reboot
10. Open firefox and type :)
