If you want to advertise here, please see the links at the bottom of the page.

If your question is real:

You want a wifi driver for your wireless card. Once you have the driver, it will work with any Linux. To help you, we would need to know what the card is.

anup;

Please do not use texting shorthand here---spell out your words.

The link was removed because it appeared to be advertising that was unrelated to your question. After you have been here for a while, you'll see what kinds of things are generally allowed.

Here are the specs for your laptop: (found using Google)
http://www.dell.com/us/en/home/noteb...55&cs=19&s=dhs

Have you checked for drivers using the Fedora package manager? e.g.: just do a search on "Dell". Also, copy the exact words from the spec, add "linux drivers", and search on Google

You can doublecheck the card type by issuing: /sbin/lspci on the command line.

Can you post the output of /sbin/lspci (the line about wireless)? Google shows it'll be broadcom, let's see exactly which one.
Can you also post the output of ifconfig and iwconfig?

It seems that it's got an Intel wifi card.
Code:
04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Unknown device 4232
There are some relatively recent posts on the internet suggesting downloading firmware / recompiling the kernel to enable support for that card. Which kernel are you using (output of 'uname -r')?

Perhaps, someone has a more up-to-date info on the inclusion of (iwlwifi-5000-ucode?) in a Fedora kernel.

As the last resort, you could probably install a windows wifi driver for this laptop using ndiswrapper.
