I did get Fedora 2 to run with no problem on my laptop with wireless, however it has been a while and I don't remember the exact steps, so you might need to adjust some of these instructions.
Go to a console and type " su ",enter password for root. Then type " ndiswrapper -l " this will check if ndiswrapper is installed and will list drivers it is using.
While as root type kedit or gedit to open text editor as root, use to change config files. DON'T FORGET TO BACKUP
If it is installed, try using the version you got. Go to ndiswrapper cards page and download your driver (find the pciid from lspci above) Something like 14e4:4301 (rev 02).
If it is not installed download the latest version uncompress it, follow the instructions included to install it ( http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/w...?Distributions
) scroll down to the Fedora section.
After you have ndiswrapper installed just try loading your driver with " ndiswrapper -i driver_name.inf "
To keep the install simple disable MAC filtering, WEP, etc... and enable broadcast name on your router. After you get everything going you can go back and enable these features.
Enable firewall to use wlan0 for connection, and go to " /etc/sysconfig/network " look for the eth0 script open as root and change enable_on_boot to no.
This will speed up boot up and keep " Failed " message from boot up. You will need to enable eth0 manually to use wired ethernet port. This is optional.
