I am using Byron's post.

root at daniel-ubuntu:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto eth1

iface eth1 inet dhcp
        wireless-mode managed
        wpa-driver ndiswrapper
        wpa-ssid ASD
        wpa-psk s:<the WPA not the WEP key>

This is the key that I used on the Windows partition as the WPA key
(entered as a string).
