first, you should tell us exactly what error you are getting.....

"ralink fedora" gives a bunch of hits in Google. A quick scan suggests that the solutions are there. I noted that "ralink" seems to be the name of a line of wireless cards.

"edimax linux fedora" also gives many hits. The first one speaks of success!!

Hello bchager

It was my belief that the rt61 driver was already built into Fedora 7, it certainly is in Fedora 8.

You could try:

Code:
/sbin/lsmod |grep rt
from a terminal and see if it is. It could save you a lot of trouble.
