    WiFi Connection in FC3


    Alright I just bought a ENCORE 54Mbps Wireless Router which can be found here

    I got this to work with my Gateway Solo 9550 XL which is running Fedora Core 3


    I have not yet configured any form of WEP or WPA, I was gonna wait till I could get a base connection up.


    This is about as much as I can do on my own. The best I've done routing around FC3 is to find a program called KWiFiManager and since the auto search this one has didn't work I've offically stumped myself.


    I realize this is probally a stupid, broad ended question that basically everyone on this board has asked a thousand times over but I just ask you you bear with me because I am an idiot.

    It's a 802.11B Mini PCI Radio Card

    It's the default card with the laptop

    Could you open a terminal, su to your root account, run iwconfig, and post the output?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    This link does not say to much of which chipset is used in your WLAN adapter,

    however if you could post the output from the command
    Code:
    lspci
    here on the forum, it might be easier to help you out.
    And, have to mention this, do the command as "root"

    Can you do:
    Code:
    su -
    ifconfig -a
    And how many interfaces do you have?

    Try (as root)

    Code:
    /sbin/iwconfig
    and
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    and if those don't work try
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/iwconfig
    and
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/lspci
