Wireless card or NIC not working?!?
First where is are the files (likely /etc/*) where i can change options and settings and everything for my network card and wireless card, i'd assume they'd be in the same file. eth0, eth1, eth2 and on i'm guessing is what i'll have to configure.
My Network Card is Reltek RTL8169/8110 Family Gigabit Ethernet NIC
My Wireless Card seems to be a little bit more rare, it's an O2Micro OZ711M1 MemoryCardBus Controller.
Even with the correct driver that Fedora 3 has for my NIC it does not work. It does but it cannot find the IP. When i do this it cannot connect at all. i'm attempting to from a router that the modem is hooked up too. Even when i hook up directly to the modem with an RJ45 it still does not work.
i would really appreciate any help i can get, i don't want to have to rely on Windows to go on the internet. Thanks.
Are you using DHCP?
If that is default, then most likely i am.

okay you have an Atheros Chipset on the wireless card? That might be a prism54 driver. What does ifconfig -a say?
ifconfig -a printout...
Here is the printout for ifconfig -a.

How many NICs do you have on that box?
i've only had the one that's built with it. And i also have only had the one wireless card.
Okay, then it has not been recognized by Linux. I'll look up the chipset later.
