Wireless Card Not Found


I have just installed FC4. To my horror my wireless US Robotics card has not been detected which means I have not got access to the very much needed internet. How could I get FC4 to detect my wireless card?

Thanks

If your card is not supported (/sbin/lspci to get more info about chip etc.) you can use ndiswrapper with your windows drivers.

If your card is a Model 5410, you're in luck ... Look in the HCL.

Otherwise google for 'USR (your model nbr) linux driver'. Chances are pretty good that you'll find a driver and instructions to get it going. Don't use ndiswrapper if you can find a native driver. When you get it going, be sure to add your experience to the HCL.

My card model is US ROBOTICS 8054. I am not running FC4 now as I prefer Kubuntu. Thanks for the help everyone!
