Unable to set up wireless via my usb device


I havn't the faintest clue how to set up wirless networking on my Fedora 9 system. I have tried using the Network Configuration window but to no avail so I have resorted to doing it the proper way in the terminal.
I have a usb device supplied with my router which I am assured by the instruction manual that it is compatible with linux systems, however it does not tell you, at all, how to set it up.

When I use lsusb I get a responce of
Bus001 Device 005: ID 0846:6a00 NetGear, Inc. WG111 WiFi (v2)

I have a disk of drivers but its not very helpful because it doesn't have any instructions on how to install the correct driver.

can anyone help?
