Unhappy How do you run "xorg.conf.back" file? in Toshiba laptop


while updating my Fedora Core linux somehow my wireless connection feature doesn't work anymore.

I have a xorg.conf.back file (backup file?) which i don't know how to use or run to back up all my configurations. How can i run/use this file?

I have searched the net but found no answer. I am new to linux so don't know what to do.

thanks for readin or trying to help

Sorry this does not answer your question, but the 'xorg.conf.back' file most likely has nothing to do with your wireless configuration. The 'xorg.conf' file control settings and configuration information for your X-server (graphics, monitor display, resolution, refresh rate, mouse input, etc.).

This is only an idea:
If you updated your Fedora Core, chances are you may have updated your kernel also. If you update your kernel then EVERY ADDITIONAL driver must be updated with it. These are the drivers you may had to install seperately (maybe video card, wireless, etc.). ... Either undo your update or just redo your wireless setup.
