In the other kernel, I found an rtl8187.ko file in /lib/modules/2.6.29.4-167.fc11.i586/kernel/drivers/net/wireless. Is the the driver I installed? And if so, how do I load the other kernel?...

    There is a point during the boot that you can select the kernel. It is just prior to when the kernel loads. You can press the up/down arrow keys, and then the list should appear.

    Hmm, I loaded the kernel, but no wireless. I can't seem to figure this out.

    Thank you for all your quick replies, though

    I installed Ndiswrapper, since nothing else I've tried was working. It seemed to work at first, but when I entered the WPA passcode for my wireless router, it wouldn't connect. (It would show the icon that means that it is connecting to a netowork and repeatedly ask for the WPA password.)

    Also, every time I try to load a module using modprobe, I get this error:

    Code:
    WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/
    EDIT: I don't know if this will help, but here are some screenshots.

    THIS is what I get when using the modprobe command for anything.

    As demonstrated HERE, I can detect the networks. But when I try to connect to one, and put the encryption key in, it loads for a few moments, then gives me THIS. When I put in the key again, it does the same thing, and waits a few moments and asks for the encryption key without connecting.

    I am sure that I'm entering the encryption key correctly.

    First, it looks like there are some errors in modprobe.conf. Please post the contents of that file.

    Second, as the error mentions, /etc/modprobe.conf has become deprecated. You can just move it into /etc/modprobe.d/

    All config files in /etc/modprobe.d/ also need to end with .conf, which is a change as well.

    Ok, I checked the file and it seems that something in ndiswrapper has replaced modprobe.conf. That's likely the reason why it's not working.

    This also could be a problem with NetworkManager. Try uninstalling it, and replacing it with Wicd.

    How in the world did that get into the modprobe.conf file!

    That actually is the output of this command (ndiswrapper without any options given):
    Code:
    ndiswrapper

    It's very odd. Is there a way to restore the modprobe.conf file?
    Or a place where I can copy/paste or download the file?
