    Which wireless card is that ? Intel 3945 ?
    Which Linux distribution are you using ?

    You'll need to install a package called "dkms-ipw3945" from freshrpms.net.

    First add the freshrpms repository :
    Code:
    rpm -ivh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/6/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm
    Then install the IPW3945 package :
    Code:
    yum install dkms-ipw3945
    or perhaps the package is called some other related name, look for the exact name like that :
    Code:
    yum list ipw3945
    Or simply go in Add/Remove Programs (once the freshrpms repository is installed).

    To connect, you can use network-manager.

    To enable it, go in System -> Administration -> Services
    and enable both "NetworkManager" and "NetworkManagerDispatcher".

    Then reboot.

    In Add/Remove Programs, make sure the packages : "system-config-services" (you need this one for System -> Administration ->Services) and "networkmanager-gnome" are installed.
