    Setting up a PCI wireless card


    I have installed a PCI wireless Network card into my computer running Fedora 12. There computer does not have X windows running. I want to connect to the wireless Access point in my house using this PCI wireless network card. My computer also has a PCI ethernet card installed, when I opened /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts, I can only see ifcfg-eth0, I was expecting to see ifcfg-wlan0 config file as well but its not there. How do I get my PCI wireless card linked to the Access point. Thanks in advance!!

    First, Fedora 12 reached end of life in December of 2010, so I would recommend upgrading to a supported release.

    Details on setting up a wireless connection are here.

    You might also consider install wicd-curses. I think it's in the Fedora repos.
