hi, I dont have an Ethernet cable plauuged in,
ifconfig wlan0 up
- returns nothing
ifconfig eth0 down
iwist wlan0 scan
- wan0 no networks found
When I followed the link ... im not sure what you meant which part didnt work? I added the lines to the relevant files but nothing seemed to happen, No networks were still returned when I scanned for them. Is there some major thing I should be doing that It doesnt say in that link when im atttempting to connect to a wireless network?

No, I'm just checking to see if you tried it and got an error or something. I think that the problem might be the driver (Module rtl8180) is the wrong one. I think you need the rt2870 module but the info I am finding says it isn't included in your kernel. You need kernel 2.6.29 and up. Any chance you could try another distro?
EDIT: Try post #19, if you get a newer kernel, I don't think it will work with your current kernel.

OEL is based off of RHEL5
this is not a desktop distribution, so the wireless support is hit or miss
you should use a desktop distribution such as fedora to get wireless working easily
In case you need OEL for some reason perhaps you can run it in a VM
It is very unlikely unless you upgrade the kernel that you will get wireless working, and getting a newer kernel on there might be difficult
