    PS3 Wireless Network on Fedore Core 6


    I installed Fedora Core 6 on my PS3 on the weekend and had troubles running the gnome desktop. After reading some posts on this forum I was able to fix this issue but now I'm having trouble getting a network connection. I'm using the wireless network card to connect to the internet and it is working from the game-os but it doesn't seem to be setup in linux. This is my first linux installation and I'm not sure how to configure this. I'm now running the gnome desktop and I went to the System->Administration->Network application. There are no devices listed under the device tab and there is one item under the hardware tab (Gelic Network Driver/Ethernet/eth0/system). Do I need to add another hardware item for the wireless card or add another device on the device tab or both? Or am I totally in the wrong place here? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Even a wired connection doesn't seem to work

    Apologies if I've gone a little off track here but I've noticed that even a Wired Network Connection isn't working on a PS3 with Fedora 6.

    History:
    I installed Yellowdog and basic functions all worked fine (Except for Wireless). Including my Wired Network Connection (this is actually a cheap motorola wireless bridge)
    I decided to install Fedora 6 had a bunch of Video problems (now resolved), however, Fedora is reporting that I have no network connection even though I have an IP address from my DHCP server.

    I wonder if this is going to be a hurdle once the Wireless Card has been activated ... just a thought...

    do you have DNS set up?
    Code:
    gedit /etc/resolv.conf
    it should look similar to this
    ; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
    search Belkin
    nameserver 192.168.2.1
    If not you probably need to get this info from your ISP or a windows machine on the same network.
