Hey here is the problem i am. I bought a dell XPS and just installed fedora core 5. I have cable access to the internet but it doesn't seem to recognize my wireless modem. does anyone have any answers or is there a previous thread i can look at
Card: Dell Truemobile 1350 minipci 54mbps
Chipset: Broadcom Corporation BCM94306 802.11g (rev 03)
Driver: http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R81433.EXE (use bcmwl5a.inf in directory AR)
Other: So far, so good. WEP appears to work fine, as does WPA with CCMP/AES.
