Dell D600 - Wireless - Newb question


Hello everyone. I am totaly new to linux. I am MCSE but know nothing about linux. I just installed Fedora. - pretty cool so far

Having problem's getting my wireless card to work. The card is intergraded.

I went to App > System Tools > Network Device Control

I went to configure > New

Here is where I am having problems. If I select Eternet Connection, my wireless card is shown here. Why is my wireless card showing here (Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (eth1). Shouldn't it be under wireless connection?

So anyways, I add it for kicks under ethernet connection. Automaticaly set defaults of DHCP. Now when I try to activate it, it gives error: eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initalization.

If I add it under wireless and then select Intell Pro 100. It gives the same error message.

Anyone know what I am doing wrong here?

Regards,
Beenie

I am also using a D600, but I have the Broadcom mini wireless card, so I am not entirely sure if the process will be the same.
I use ndsiwrapper with the windows driver to get my wireless card working. I'm not sure if you need it with the intel cards. What does '# iwconfig' say?
can you run '# iwlist scanning' ?
Also ensure you have wireless tools installed
# yum install wireless-tools

Wireless configuration for linux is rather tricky. Not as easy as in XP. Try wifiradar or NetworkManager.
