Hi:

Welcome to LQ!

Congratulations on the Fedora Installation!

I have a few questions for you in order to help.
Are you using a WiFi usb adapter and if so what brand?

Do you know what NIC network interface card you have?

dv6 wireless issues

Thank you for your reply. The dv6 in question was given to my wife who runs windows 7. so sad , but She needs office features at the moment. Well when I replaced the hd into this dv6 I got to hp's site and they updated the drivers for it. Now It gets Internet of of the wireless. At the moment I am running fed 17 on an hp pavillion a815n. I can not get the Cisco linlsys ae2500 to function. I love this os, although I am new to the comunity. Fedora does so much with so little. It has expanded my computing options. do you have any ideas?

Got a few ideas yes-

You can go to the Linksys website and look for a driver for your adapter and install it.

I know Fedora is nice! I'm going to be installing it myself soon. BTW I am still learning about Fedora and looking for this information; too. I'm looking now on how to install a driver.

How to install a driver in Fedora:

Here is one way to get the adapter to work that I found but I really do not want; and you may not want to use Ndiswrapper. I'll continue to look and see if there is some other way to accomplish this.

Is your Hewett Packard 32bit or 64?

Open your terminal and type the command:
Code:
iwconfig
Copy and paste the output so we can look at it.
You might (depending on the output) need a driver for your wireless card.
