wireless


I am new user for linux system. After installing it when i tried to make
internet connection via wireless connection it doesn't work.
I've tried to configure it but a lot of shortcuts are unusuall and need
experience to handle with, such as ssid, IVP4,...
How can I configure it?
THANKS

Not much we can do to help you without a lot more information. What kind of wireless device is it? Do you know the make and model of it? What distribution are you running? Do you get any errors?

Thanks for tour answer.
Actually I am using the device Cisco Wireless-N, Access point. Wap4410N.
This device is working properly with windows7. Access to internet is good, no
problems. But when using Fedora system and trying to access internet the problem
begins. I've tried to define the wireless network but the uncommon shortcuts make
it difficult for me to finish it.
Again, thank you

Is it sensing the wireless network?

If so, you need to enter the wireless network name (ssid), select the encryption type, and enter the wireless network password (AKA passphrase).

If you tell us what distribution you are using, we can offer more specific help.

Fedora has a live IRC channel you can try for more direct help. this problem can be many different things, and that channel may be the easiest place to get help quickly.
Try to connect with Mozilla addon "chatzilla". waring, you will need to sign up on the freenode server(free).

I can also suggest trying Mandriva, it has loads of good Wireless drivers and require almost no setup. I would be surprised if Mandriva does not autodetect your wireless. It is also easy to use for new Linux users, easier than Fedora.
