Wireless networking on Toshiba laptops with fedora core 2

I have 2 Toshiba laptops, an N4000 and a Satalite pro 4600 both dual booting XP and FC2.

The problem I have is that I cannot get the wireless network card working under fedora on either laptop.

After much googling I have tried a few suggestions as follows:

Hi, all

I have follow your differents suggest and I have found procedure to resolve this problem

sockets detection

a) edite the file /etc/init.d/pcmcia

b) comment this line with #

if ! grep -q pcmcia /proc/devices ; then

c) and replace it with that line

if ! /sbin/lsmod | grep -q $PCIC ; then

d) save the file ( txs rivvah for this tips )

Detection pcmcia controler before networking service

a) make cd /etc/rc3.d

b) create a symblolic link with "/etc/init.d/pcmcia" befor the network

ln -s /etc/init.d/pcmcia /etc/rc3.d/S09pcmcia

c) reboot the system.

This hasn't really helped much, now eth1 is an intersil prism2 wireless card rather than an orinoco_cs, however fedora network applet insists that this is an Ethernet device so I cannot set any wireless network settings such as the SSID and WEP settings.

Any suggestions or solutions would be greatfully received.
