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
wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:90:4B:54:E2:F6

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
