ACX111 and Fedora 17


Hello to all !!

First, I am very new to this and will be the first to admit that I am in way over my head. With that said, I am in hopes that someone can help me with my Linksys WPG54G. I am running Fedora Live 17 until I can get this problem fixed. At that time, I will do a complete install to the hard drive.

The Linksys card I am trying to use is an ACX111 according to lspci. I see lots of instructions on the web regarding ndiswrapper and older versions of Fedora, but I don't see anything current. Should I continue to try using this card, or can someone recommend a PCMCIA card that works right out of the box with Fedora 17?

Thank you,
Doug

live CD's by there nature do not have mush built in support
after all there is ONLY less than 700 meg of space

install from the 4.6 gig dvd

but fedora is very often SO VERY NEW that there might NOT be drivers for hardware .Because the hardware manufactures have NOT had time to build a new one
seeing as fedora changes SO VERY much every 6 months

Fedora is a " research and Development " distro
one that uses VERY VERY new software
Often versions of programs that not many YET support
