Wireless card 2200 recognized as ethernet?

Hi everyone. I'm a complete noob at Linux, so bear with me.

I have a notebook which I'm trying to get wireless to work on. I haven't used the system for a while, and when I did a yum upgrade, kudzu notified me of new hardware ( the 2200 card). This was actually progress, since I haven't been able to find it at all earlier.

Solve one, discover two, right? Now I see the wireless card in the list of ethernet adapters, but not in the list of wireless ones. How do I get it recognized correctly?
