WiFi Connection in FC3

Alright I just bought a ENCORE 54Mbps Wireless Router which can be found here

I got this to work with my Gateway Solo 9550 XL which is running Fedora Core 3

I have not yet configured any form of WEP or WPA, I was gonna wait till I could get a base connection up.

This is about as much as I can do on my own. The best I've done routing around FC3 is to find a program called KWiFiManager and since the auto search this one has didn't work I've offically stumped myself.

I realize this is probally a stupid, broad ended question that basically everyone on this board has asked a thousand times over but I just ask you you bear with me because I am an idiot.

First of all... What is your question?

Secondly besides the WikiManager, did you try to see the network connections using "Network Device Control" under System Tools (I believe).

I have FC3 with a netgear wireless card. Once there you configure the internet connection for each device accordingly and set the password for WEP with a prefix "0x" before the key code.

also disable any other network device on boot...

If this helps, then great. Otherwise, SORRY...

Good luck
