Manual Network Setup Works, /etc/network/interfaces doesn't


I am trying to get my laptop to connect to my home wireless network. It used to work fine, but now the exact same settings don't work. However when I manually bring up the interface it does work.

Code:
#/etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto wlan0
     pre-up       iwconfig wlan0 essid *** key 123456789A
     address      192.168.1.101
     netmask      255.255.255.0
     gateway      router
Code:
# ifup wlan0
# ping router
PING router (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.1.101 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
etc...
Code:
# iwconfig wlan0 essid *** key 123456789A
# ifconfig wlan0 192.168.1.101 netmask 255.255.255.0
# route add default gw router
# ifconfig wlan0 up
# ping router
PING router (192.168.1.1) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from router (192.168.1.1): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=3.12 ms
etc...
Any Ideas?

Network card:
Broadcom BCM4306 (via ndiswrapper)
Distro:
Ubuntu Breezy
