Wireless and webcam problem in Fedora 10


Hi
I installed Fedora 10 few days back in my laptop (dell inspiron15) and i had problems with wireless connection and webcam.

I have a WLAN (UTSTARCOM)

Had no problems connecting to net using lan cable.But wireless was a problem.I tried changing the settings in the Network Connection window using the settings wit my ISP. Still no luck.

And with my webcam like i updated wit "yum update". and i got some software application named "digikam" but tat did not detect either my lap webcam or the usb (logitech) webcam that i had.

Sorry that i could not give more details about Wireless Driver.
I also would request to know the command that i should use to actually know what driver is in my laptop and also for the video driver.

Requesting suggestions from you frnds

thank you in advance

Thank You for ur suggestions. I updated with yum update and got another "cheese webcam booth" which works with both usb webcam and laptop cam.

Actually dont know what exactly was the problem with digikam.

But Wireless problem is still not solved. Would appreciate if u can suggest any solutions for getting wireless work.

Thank You.

Consider an upgrade, Fedora 10 is about 18months old, we're on 12 now, with 13 on it's way. You may find these problems have long since been fixed; I am using the same hardware successfully to post this now

For your wireless card, there are two drivers, the opensource b43 (which requires non-free firmware) or the proprietary Broadcom wl driver. The b43 only began supporting this card recently, as of kernel 2.6.32, so you'll probably need the wl driver.

This guide is for Fedora 11, but it should be exactly the same process.

Or here is another guide, a little more in depth.

Thank you reed9
I followed the link u gave and installed akmod-wl package and got wireless working. And i was able to access websites but then today when i tried to access my wireless it says connected and have 100% connection but then could not access any webpages.Dunno what actually is the problem. Can you suggest anything to configure wireless in fedora.
