Question Installing WPC11 (Version 1) & WDT11 on a PC with RedHat Linux 8.0

I am having a tough time getting this combination of devices on my VERY FIRST installation of RedHat Linux 8.0 (Stock Kernel). I have tried many things so far but i am sure it is not everything.

I need someone to give me a STEP-BY-STEP breakdown of everything that I have to do to get this to work. I have gotten the drivers from LINKSYS but I could not get that to work and I even tried some stuff that I have seen on here but none of it has worked so far.

I have a Linksys Wireless Router Setup so I am not using AD-HOC mode and I am not using WEP security.

I have been to and I could not get anything to work even after doing everything that they say. I need someone that has done this before and got it to work on RedHat 8.0.

Here are some sites that I have tried so far with no luck:

I have the version 1 of the WPC11 along with the WDT11 installed on a DESKTOP running REDHAT LINUX 8.0.
But if you had luck with that on your desktop computer please let me know.
