    Hi xGutsAndGloryxWe, from the great state of Alabama!

    Open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    ...and press enter. Find the part about this device and post it here. Also do:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -n
    ...and post that here too which corresponds to your device.

    Once we know what chipset it uses, we can then figure out the best course to follow to get it operational. Be aware though that some devices are impossible to get working under Linux while others can work with anywhere from a little bit of effort to a whole lot of trouble.

    Same chipset I have, except mine is a belkin product.
    You need MADWifi
    If you have a working Ethernet connection you can use yum.
    yum install madwifi
    You'll need livna repo for yum.

    Strangly enough, I have the same chipset too in a Dlink. I've been running mine with ndiswrapper and it has performed perfectly. Do as MikeTbob says though. MADWifi is especially for Atheros chipsets.

    You should be able to set up the card with system-config-network after installing MADWifi and enter all your settings.

    Do:
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    and see if ath_pci is there. If so your driver is ready to go. As MikeTbob said, open system-config-network and configure your card. Click on the "new" tab, then, wireless device. It should give you the choice of a madwifi wireless card there and is likely listed as ath0. Choose it and configure the other settings as you want them. DHCP over Static IP? Network name? all of those will be choices for you there.

    Was just searching old posts and saw this one... Like an idiot, my last post contained the wrong command. Sorry. To see if ath_pci is present, you need to type "/sbin/lsmod." and see if it is present, not "/sbin/lspci." A very belated apology for the confusion and inconvenience I've likely caused...
