how to make the wlan adapter to startup and connect at boot?

I've got an ASUS usb wireless adapter and hopefully found a Ralink driver worked for it. It'd be perfect if it can connect itself to the AP at boot. Presently, I connect manually with the commands (with root privileges):

# I dun know why I have to do it everytime but I dun do it, it fails to work
insmod /usr/share/rt25usb/rt2570.ko

# I want it to have a static ip
ifconfig rausb0 up

# I dun endorse any encryption policy for testing purpose
iwconfig rausb0 essid "default"

# I've checked the routing table, the "default" always doesnt show up after boot
route add default gw rausb0

My /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-rausb0:

thank you.

I had a similar problem and what I did to automatically connect at boot was drop the commands in the following file /etc/rc.d/rc.local. I'm not sure if that is the correct way but it worked for me in FC4. Hope this helps
