    Have you tried other distros or are you just trying like hell to get Fedora working?
    What wireless card do you have?
    What's the model of your laptop?
    Why do you want 64 bit processing? Why not just 32 bit?
    Two levels higher than a newb.
    (I can search google)

    Well, other distros are much cheaper than a new wifi card, so give Ubuntu or Kubuntu a try.

    But if you want to stick with Fedora and your current card, then ndiswrapper will be your friend. Go to the ndiswrapper wiki and search some of the other threads where this subject has been already discussed. Come on back with more questions.
