Ndiswrapper - WIFI - 8.04

Hello there!

I have a "little" problem with my Ubuntu 8.04. Ive just install it yesterday, and i cant fix the wireless problem.
Ive got my internet from the next room by SMC router, and i have a SMCWPCI-G (realtek chipset) wifi card.
My exactly problem is: my ubuntu dont use, and dont see my wifi card, so i cannot reach the internet...
I know, i can fix that problem with ndiswrapper, BUT!
I need a step-by-step ndiswrapper tutorial (cannot install in synaptic :-\)

ps.: sorry about my bad english
