    Help wifi & fedora 8


    Dell Laptop Latitude 110L

    I installed Fedora 8 done the update using a Wired LAN that went good.
    I unhooked and tryed to setup my WIFI card not good. Then a reboot back to XP and gathered as much information as I could on my WIFI card using Devise mangler ok as some call it Device Manager hers what I did get
    First thing I came to was a General information screen done in windows
    Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI card
    Device Type: Network adapter
    Manufacture: Broadcom
    Location: PCI bus 2,device 3, function

    Ok this gave me some information as to the WIFI Card ID and vary little help in resolving the issue with Linux not able to use my WIFI card
    under the Advance tab

    Scrolling down the Property list and seeing what I could find there for what it worth this was done in widows XP SP3. This is what I was able to obtain;

    Device ID
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&SUBSYS_00051028&REV_02\4&2FA 23535&0&18F0

    Hardware ID
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&SUBSYS_00051028&REV_02
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&SUBSYS_00051028
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&CC_028000
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&CC_0280

    Computable ID's
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&REV_02
    PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318
    PCI\VEN_14E4&CC_028000
    PCI\VEN_14E4&CC_0280
    PCI\VEN_14E4
    PCI\CC_028000
    PCI\CC_0280

    Matching ID's
    pci\ven_14e4&dev_4318&subsys_00051028
    services
    BCM43XX

    Emulator
    PCI

    Devnode flags
    DN_DRIVER_LOADED
    DN_STARTED
    DN_DISABLEABLE
    DN_NT_ENUMERATOR
    DN_NT_DRIVER

    Class installer
    NetCfgx.dll,NetClassInstaller

    Current power state
    Do

    Power capabilities
    PDCAP_D0_SUPPORTED
    PDCAP_D3_SUPPORTED


    Power state mapping
    S0 -> D0
    S1 -> Unspecified
    S2 -> Unspecified
    S3 -> D3
    S4 -> D3
    S5 -> D3
    So hopefully this is of a descent value to a the conflict of Linux not seeing or using my WIFI card

    Drivers Tab
    Driver Provider: Broadcom
    Driver Date: 11/27/2004
    Driver signature: (Windows Public)
    Driver Details button
    C: win/sys/win32/........ECT
    Yes I know that this is windows drivers information. moveing along now on the Recourse's tab
    Memory Range: DFDFE000 - DFDFFFFF (This is the address range that this device takes up in the ram when windows boots up)
    IRQ: 19

    How do I make this work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am not a Linux guru by no means! But I have worked with it a few times and I do like it. This one has me going a bit bald ( lol OK perhaps it is my age and the family tree causing the balding)
