That's totally incorrect. Network Manager can do it with just a few mouse clicks. Use the "Create New Wireless Network..." function in Network Manager, put in some basic information (give your network a name and password, basically) and you're done. It's even easier than using that Windows software that was mentioned earlier in the thread.
It's good that you're trying to help people, but in this particular case you're several years behind the times, and trying to help people who had it working nearly three years ago
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
