    Hi Ryudo and welcome!

    This is an 802.11b device? If so, for some reason RedHat based distros sometimes will configure 'b' wireless cards as regular ethernet cards, thus not giving you a choice of configuring the wep key, essid, etc.. The way around it is to open system-config-network and delete the entry for your card, then click of the hardware tab and start over configuring your card as a wireless device. If your driver isn't present in the list, delete everything, and reboot. Let kudzu re-find your device and install the driver for it and try again. If that doesn't work, you may have to configure "by hand" which isn't too hard. Let us know what happens...

    ok so heres the deal

    i was really tired when i made this post i wasnt thinking straight O.O

    so really i installed linux on my laptop which has an intel pro wireless 3945ABG nic (or so says windows) it works with windows xpas that driver (it is an intel wireless though)

    so i cant find that driver in the list though, theres only 3 intel ones and i tried them in the list ( i did what was previously posted)

    not sure what to do hmmmm!
