Fedora C2 - Wireless network drivers? Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter


Hey all. I'm running Fedora CORE 2 on my laptop which has an integrated Broadcom 802.11g WNIC in it. Fedora is only picking up my Intel wired NIC.

I have tried to add my wireless nic manually but there is no driver for it. I've tried using variations of other cards and IRQ's and such to get it to work but with no luck

If anyone knows a secret to get my card working with Fedora that'd be bitchin because I don't have a wired network in my house, just my wireless so Fedora is pretty much useless w/o wireless networking.

How would I go about finding the correct IO's, DMA's, and IRQ?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help!!!

integrated cards are tricky... it's possible that nobody has written a driver for it yet. You can try google, also you might check this site's HCL and also the linux-wlan site has a pretty extensive HCL. However if your card has no drivers yet then you're outta luck

(unless of course, you write your own ... )

I know Mandrake 10.1 has a prism driver for the 54Mbps cards. Check and see what chipset yours uses. I agree with the above poster, check out www.linux-wlan.org

sourceforge is working on a driver for you

i have the same problem

if none of the other suggestions pan out

try this site and check back with it frequently to find out if a driver is finished yet
