What is "Set Mode (8B06)" error
I have been trying for days to configure the wireless adapter on my ACER laptop. This is something that I expected to almost manage itself. I amamazed at the confusing things I have found. I am not getting the warm fuzzy feeling I hoped for with LINUX. I think Windows did too much for me.
I havea wireless network running in my house, everything is soooo easy.
But Fedora9 will only connect via ethernet, which keeps me tethered to my router.....

That's not saying there ain't a solution.
Can you give the output of these commands?
/sbin/ifconfig /sbin/ifconfig -a /sbin/lspci
On a related note. I don't have a webcam, so my dad gave his one to me. I plug it in and nothing happens. I open up a mediaplayer and see 'webcam feed' listed. I click it and have life feed from the webcam. I did not click anything, didn't install drivers. Linux just recognizes the device and waits for the user to tell it what to do with it. I can now chat with life audio and video, which I wont... (cuz I hate it)
That's just saying, all I needed to do to install a new webcam was to raise the microphone-in in my mixer because the audio level was to low. You have a little more trouble as it seems, but that's not Linux's (de)fault.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI

To determine the driver to use, more specific information is needed. Read through the post linked to below, and post the output of the commands here in this post.
