Question Fedora Core 2 test 3 not initilizing WPC54G linksys wireless card


I have just recently gotten into Linux from a friend of mine and have wanted to test a few things out with its capabilities utilizing wireless internet access.

Here is my issue. I can't find linux drivers for this device nor will linux notice that it is there.

Am I missing something here or have I not looked hard enough or just simply don't know enough about code to understand (hence why I am forcing myself to work with this brand new release of Fedora Core 2).

I would appreciate any help that is out there while I continue to look for answers. Thanks much.

u can also try out some of the info in the tutorials, which give u some commands to test your wireless cards such as "iwconfig" and "iwlist"

If you're missing modules and if your card uses the Atmel chipset then you may be able to get at least 802.11b functionality using the drivers at http://atmelwlandriver.sourceforge.net
