Dell Inspiron 1525/ Fedora 9
As my username suggests, I am absolutely new at this. I purchased a new Dell Inspiron 1525 and installed Fedora 9 on it. (And was very proud of myself for getting even that far.)
I'm unable to get wireless access. I've tried to set it up with the Network Configuration tool, but I when I hit the "Activate" button I get this message: "/sbin/ifup: configuration for eth0 not found. Usage: ifup <device name>"
I have DSL service from Verizon, which works on my Mac (which is what I'm typing this on now). I have the ESSID and the WEP key for that.
The hardware on the Dell is Marvell 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet. The kernel version is 2.6.25-14.fc9.i686.
I'd add all the responses to the commands listed in the "Wireless Setup- Start Here" post but since I don't have Internet access on that computer I'd have to type them all in manually on the one I'm using.
Please help if you can! And please give very simple instructions if possible! Thanks.
