Fedora Core 4 and wireless router


Hi,
I'm using a HP zd8181 laptop. I've dual booted with XP and Linux (Fedora Core 4). I've got a Belkin 7230-4 wireless router and my ISP is Blueyonder Broadband. My router is fine with XP and I can access the internet on Linux with an ethernet connection. What do I need to do to access the internet wirelessly using Linux?
Thanks in advance

You man have to use ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/

I also have a a dual boot FC4 and XP with an external netgear wag511.
Since netgear doesn't make drivers for linux you have to use the driver made for windows. My netgear card works great with Fedora.
