Shuttle PN-11 and PN15 G Wireless with Fedora Core 3

I am trying to get a PN-11 and a PN-15G wireless module running on a Shuttle SN41G2 (AMD and Nforce 2) and a Shuttle SN25P -Nforce 4 /Athalon 3500 x86_64 using Fedora Core 3 with the most current kernel: 2.6.10_1.770_FC3.

Using ndiswrapper almost works: (much better than the Shuttle Linux beta which crashes with 50+ errors executing make) See below:

The big ( trivial ) question is how do I get the browser (and the OS) to vector to and use the working wireless connection?

eg: What is the command that is equivalent to the Win2k/XP:
ipconfig /renew

so that the OS and browser will recognize that the wireless is there?

I can unplug the RJ-45 cable and then plug it in again and have the same problem.. the Fedora Core 3 does not realize that the network is actually there.


I can ping the wireless router using the following:

Kernel: Shuttle SN41G2V2 Nforce 2 chipset
Fedora Core 3 (2.6.10-1.770_FC3) (32 bit)

Scan for the wireless port

[root@localhost ~]# iwconfig wlan0 essid ESSID
[root@localhost ~]# iwlist wlan0 scan

That answer would depend upon what browser you are talking about, but in general the setting would be under Preferences (Connection Settings) in Firefox via Edit on its toolbar and then in KDE you would have to Configure Konqueror's network settings.
