    Well, you dump a bunch of (possibly) irrelevant data on this thread, and expect a response? Trust me, this much data is only useful in context. 1) you don't say what your OS/kernel/environment may be. 2) you don't specify what the hardware is although to your credit you post the output of lsmod, lspci, and lsusb. After some analysis of your posting, the device you are concerned with is RTL8188CE, a RealTek WiFi chip set, correct? So, visit Welcome - Linux Wireless and see what it says about dealing with this device.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    All the irrelevent data was from the script thast was in the sticky thread at the top. I just cut and pasted is as it requested, also the OS and the device model is in the title so I don't know what was difficult about that either. As far as the kernal/enviroment I assumed that was in the data I cut and past, but as I'm just learning Linux I didn't post them because if it wasn't in the data requested I wouldn't know to even look for it in the first place. AFTER posting this thread I realized the kernel was in the "grey" area for the driver I downloaded and may or may not work per the readme. This was actuallt a topic continued from a diffrent thread in another forum, but it's fixed now.... I changed to Fedora lol.

    Requested by whom? Your posting was the first in this thread. Anyway, glad you got it sorted out. Just remember, Fedora is an "experimental" distribution from Red Hat. What they learn from Fedora may (or may not) get integrated into the Red Hat Enterprise Linux distributions in the future. It is a "use at your own risk" distribution. Myself, I am running either Red Hat Enterprise 6.2, or clones of that, on my work systems, home systems, and laptops. It is a bit "dated", but dead-bang reliable!

    I believe he is referring to the Wireless Setup sticky.

    I didn't even look who requested it, it's just in the sticky as info to get you started I guess. I was in the Centos forums when I was talking about this and they sent me over here and told me to read the sticky and post from the script so thats what I did lol. The big reason I'm using Linux is to get used to the RH commands and get used to the way Linux in general works. I'm in school now for a MIS degree, but this SA class is my first exposure to Linux and so far I'm liking it. But like I said this is more of a pet project for me because the new HPC they installed is running CenOS 5.7 and we are running 6.2 in class, this just lets me run from my laptop and tinker with outside of class Outside this forum I had spent 5 hours doing various things trying to get it to work properly with centOS and when I went back to school that monday the Professor spent about 45 minutes with me before we concluded that the driver were not going to work in it's current state(they came from Realtechs site) so I went to a Fedora and everything worked right out of the box. I'd like to tag this as solved, but I cant figure out how to. Normally editing the first post works but theres not link to edit it.

    To mark it as SOLVED, click on the Thread Tools link in the dark blue nav bar near the top of the screen.

    *EDIT*
    Never mind... looks like you've found it.
