My frustration level with my wireless card and FC7 is almost at the breaking point.
I had installed madwifi and gotten my card working. it could connect to my home AP. Every thing seemed okey...
I do not connect my wireless all that often when @ home, so i didn't plugin my wireless card for a few weeks. Now I want to use the wireless again so I can travel w/ my laptop. The card is not being recognized. when the box boots it says "ath0 not present, delaying startup" ifconfg -a only lists eth0 (my ethenet interface) and the loopback interface. iwconfig says no wireless present. Using the Network configuration GUI both my ethernet card and my wireless card are listed. the wireless card is "inactive" an attempt to activate it has fedora responding with the same "ath0 not present, delaying startup" I am completely stuck some one PLEASE shed some light on this for me.
