    Could you open a terminal and, as root, run
    Code:
    lspci
    Code:
    ifconfig
    and
    Code:
    iwconfig
    and post the output?

    You're running Fedora, right? In that case, you'd have to enter the entire path:
    Code:
    /sbin/iwconfig
    for example.

    Hmmm...I think you'll need to use ndiswrapper for that card. Follow the instructions here for installing and using it: http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/p...97869e47546f23

    You will need your Windows drivers to get the card working (the .inf in particular).
