Wifi Kit Ubilinux install?

Hey guys,
Just got my second Up board...love these things. Trying to get the WiFi kit installed and setup.
http://up-shop.org/up-peripherals/90-wifi-kit-for-up.html
I looked through docs and posts...found nothing on setup of the WiFi kit other than a picture of it wired in...

Even that pic makes me think they have it plugged in backwards...but anyhow.
Any instruction on setting it up in Ubilinux? Could use some help before I spin my wheels all day figuring it out :)
Thanks!

    Hi bogaat,

    We are glad that you like the UP Board!

    You can plug in the kit and install ubilinux, the system should detect the WiFi automatically.

    I did get it up and running once plugged in correctly, but it wasn't automagic. Had to run this...
    ifup wlan0

    and add the following to /etc/network/interfaces

    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wpa-ssid NetworkName
    wpa-psk pass

    if you connected the WiFi kit after the installation, that might be the case.

    From the GUI you can also launch the WICD network manager and click on preferences. From there you should add wlan0 to the wireless network field, if not present already.
