I thought Fedora 7 would bring those drivers along.
What shows
ifconfig -a
(Is the card listed)
what shows
lspci -v
(Is the card listed)

The probably easiest way is to use 'yum'
with the repos offered by livna.

http://rpm.livna.org

Mostly there's only the ipw firmware missing.

The you can configure the card using iwconfig or ifconfig or system-config-network

Thanks odcheck for the reply,

you're right they are there (both driver and firmware).
OK, i managed to configure the D-Link with the wireless card, however actually if i ping let say www.google.com it goes straight, there is no problem. If now i use a web browser it doesn't work !!!!

I checked the DNS, well it's 192.168.1.1 which the D-Link ip address, i am using modem adsl.

any suggestions !!

Thanks again odcheck.

I guess you checked dns in the TAB had you have a look in /etc/resolve.conf as well?
And which browser doesn't show anything ?
also check
route -n
To see if the default gw is set to 192.168.1.1 as well.
Firefox?
