    This is the important bit here.

    Which Linux distribution are you using ?

    Fedora Core 6 ? You'll have to wait for a Fedora lover/expert to pop in.

    On many distro this card (Intel IPW3945) work out-of-the-box (like in Ubuntu Edgy 6.10), but Fedora is not one of them.

    Anyway, this how-to on Fedora Core 6 and the IPW3945 seems worth reading :
