Red Hat 7.3 - But No Wireless Option??


im trying to set up a Buffalo Melco(Lucent) Wireless card,

Im following the docs as said but when it says choose the wirless device tab in "network config", i ran into a problem, - theres is no wirless option to choose from

This is how it looks

1. Ethernet
3. Modem Connection
4. XDSL connection
5. Token Ring
7. ? <<-- But this is where the wirless option should be?

I have upgraded using the rh network upgrade? What can i Do? Please any help on this would be cool

According to the book Red Hat Linux Bible 7.3 by Chris Negus the support for wireless was removed at the last moment from 7.3. I can report that it is 9.0.

If you can get a copy of the book - Chris Negus goes on to describe how he got two Orinocco cards working. I have different cards but I found the info pretty good.

(Good luck)
