Wifi drivers

Ill be out of your hair as soon as I hae my internet up and running again. Fedora does not have the driver for my wifi card or my ehternet card. I just want to know where I can download the drivers for a Orinco chipset on a windows machine because it still has a connecton. I have a basic understanding of yum and others but I cant yum without a net connection right?

orinoco_cs driver- thats the dirver but Its hard to find a link to it.
Suppositly the driver is included in the kernal since 2.4 but I hvae 2.6 and it didnt load it. I havent recompiled it yet so maybe it will be there after I do that.

Can You please post the output (I know you will have to type it...)
or check
as root

see if the card is present
then I know this Latitude System very well please check the BIOS regarding the Wireless Lan Settings
If it's still on and enabled?

else you could to is to check
to see which modules are currently loaded

what if you run
ifconfig -a
is there any device listed and not only the "lo"?
