Need Help getting Wireless Card to Work in Fedora 7


I just installed FC7. I need to get the internet and the only way i can do this is through my Netgear WG311t PCI Wireless Card. This card has an Atheros chipset and i need to install Madwifi to get it to work. Can someone please give me a list of what files to download and tell me how to install them? thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Please remember that i have no internet at all without my Wireless Card.

The gcc packages are on the media, you will also need the kernel-devel and kernel-headers rpm packages installed. For dkms visit:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...386/os/Fedora/

Download & install after install the other packages listed above: dkms-2.0.16-1.fc7.noarch.rpm
