    For some reason it didn't pick up the lspci bit. Can you open a terminal, enter
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    and post the output.

    2.6.23.1-42.fc8
    Am I correct that you're using Fedora 8? If so, this distribution is quite out of date and no longer supported by Fedora. You would do better to run a supported distribution.

    This is your card. There is a linux driver for it, but it looks like it may have trouble compiling on kernels >= 2.6.20, so using ndiswrapper might be your only option.

    More info:
    Distribution list/Fedora - ACX100/ACX111 wireless network driver project
    FC11: ACX111 Help Needed - FedoraForum.org

    If you like Fedora, the latest release is 11, but 12 is about to come out.
    DistroWatch.com: Fedora

    Fedora has a very rapid development cycle and they only maintain releases for about 13 months. If you want something that will get official support longer, you have a couple of options.

    If you like Fedora, you can use the Redhat Enterprise Linux, though that costs money, or a clone like Scientific Linux. I'm not sure exactly how long their releases are supported, but it's around 5 or 7 years, I think.
    Scientific Linux - Welcome to Scientific Linux (SL)
    redhat.com | Enterprise Linux-Open Source Application for Servers and Desktops built on Linux

    Ubuntu releases are maintained for 18 months, and they also put out Long Term Support releases, the desktop version of which is maintained for 3 years.
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

    Or you can use something like Debian. The official end of life date for the current Debian hasn't been released, but support is generally over 2 years.
