    Also run these command:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -ma
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -mi
    You then need to manually load the ndiswrapper module, or reboot. Then configure it in the Network program.

    What about the rtl8187se module? Did you try to load it? If it loads, that would be easier than the NDISwrapper method. Just be aware that you can't have both of the modules loading at once, or the wireless won't work.

    Okay, here's what i've got so far when i type the ff in the terminal

    modprobe ndiswrapper
    Code:
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper,  it will be ignored in a future release
    FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found
    iwconfig
    Code:
    lo            no wireless extension
    eth0        no wireless extension
    pan0        no wireless extension
    dmesg | grep ndiswrapper, /sbin/lsmod | grep ndiswrapper - returns nothing.

    btw, i didnt load rtl8187se module. how do i load it?

    I would say that NDISwrapper isn't properly installed. Most likely the kmod portion isn't the correct one for your kernel (it must match your kernel)

    The rtl8187se driver is a kernel module, so you load it with the modprobe command.
    Code:
    modprobe rtl8187se
    There is no guarantee that it is present in your kernel, but you can look for it. Look for it here:

    /lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/staging

    The reason it is in the staging folder, is because it is sort of a testing folder. It may have already been moved, so you may find it in this folder:

    /lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/net/wireless

    You should double-check the version that is installed. There are at least two parts, one is the base package of NDISwrapper, the other is the kernel module (kmod). The kmod version must match your kernel version.

    To more easily look at what you have installed, I recommend installing and using the YUM Extension GUI. It can be installed with YUM.
    Code:
    yum install yumex
    It should then be available from the menu. To check the kernel version that you are currently running, use this command.
    Code:
    uname -r

    You need to check that the kmod-ndiswrapper is the same version as the kernel. That is why I gave you that command.

    I already gave that info!

    1) Install YUM GUI: YUM Extension (yum install yumex)
    2) find kernel version (uname -r)
    3) Open YUM extension and check kmod-ndiswrapper-<kernel version>
