Need a lot more info before we can even begin to provide assistance...

What hardware are you using, what wireless card is it, what OS are you using, what have you tried, why doesn't it work, are there any error messages, is the network using encryption, if so what type?

Saying "I have a problem" doesn't do anything...help us help you.

Well that answers one of my eight questions. How about the rest?

Code:
uname -a
will give the distro version (appended onto the end of the kernel version) if it's Fedora. Or you could run
Code:
cat /etc/redhat-release

What exactly are you trying to do? It's a very vague question.

the output of these commands would be a good start:
Code:
echo uname: && uname -a -m -p && echo lspci: && lspci && echo lsusb: && lsusb && echo lsmod: && lsmod && echo ifconfig: && ifconfig && echo ifconfig -a: && ifconfig -a && echo iwconfig: && iwconfig && echo resolv.conf: && cat /etc/resolv.conf && echo route: && route -n
