problem getting broadcom wireless network card to work
 
Hello friends,

I have a Compaq Laptop Presario R3000 and installed Fedora Core2 dual booted with WindowsXP.

I have everything working except the built-in wireless card(Broadcom) to work in FC2.

If you have solution please help! I can see the wlan0 setup, but can't still connect online.

Here is the info:
Code:

[root@localhost root]# ifconfig wlan0

Most people have secured their access point, so you configure linux to get permission to access that access point, below you can find the instructions to set things up
