How to setup Wireless networking on Oracle Linux / Dell Laptop


Hi,

I am a first time Linux user - have Unix and Windows experience. So will need some hand-holding.

Need help getting my wireless network to work on my newly installed Oracle Linux on Dell laptop.

Not sure what wireless card is installed, or it's mac address (though I can boot into windows and get that info, I don't want to - it'll be kind of a let down if I can't fix it all thru Linux).

Install has detected a Broadcom wired card, but not the wireless. Funny thing is that it detected the Bluetooth.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
