Kubuntu wireless setup issues

I have managed to get my Kubuntu system to access the internet
through my home router.  It would not do so out of the box.  No
amount of fiddling with the GUI Network configuration utility would
make this work.

In order to accomplish this, I had to:

a) Go in to the command line console
a) disable WEP on my home router
b) iwlist scan # to display my router
c) sudo ipconfig ath0 essid "HOME NETWORK"
d) sudo dhclient
e) ping ... # ok

Now I want to:

a) make this work without disabling my router WEP security
b) make this automatic at startup.

What do I have to do to accomplish this?
