Thank You

From a very quick look at Dell's website, a link to the Intel page is found, which tells you which devices are supported:
http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/sb/cs-006408.htm

...and from there, you see it uses the ipw2200 module. Putting "ipw2200 fedora" into Google pulls up:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/IPW2200

...complete with instructions. Checking the manufacturer website first is always a good starting point...Google doesn't hurt either.
