connecting to internet

My HP laptop happily runs Windows on a wireless connection to a BT home hub. I partitioned the hard drive and installed Fedora, but the wireless card isn't recognised. What can I do? I was hoping to install grass.

Do you know which chipset your WLAN device uses?

With the command: lspci as root, you should be able to figure out what wireless device you have. Then dig around this place for directions in getting it up and running.
