I would very much advise against using wine to get your wifi working. Wine has enough problems trying to do what it does. That's just my opinion so maybe others have had more success with it than I've read about.

Left alone with my problems,i have been sounding the planking of my laptop and probing the internet for info..i then realised i wasnt using qualcomm(qualcomm written on the modem was a ruse,dunno why though!) at all but VIA telecoms modem(CDS4),all i need to do was register the product and vendor number..
Code:
#modprobe usbserial
#vendor=0x15eb
#product=0x0001

i tried lsusb and voila it's been detected automatically but dmesg gave not so encouraging news.Here's the output that's giving me another headache...
Code:
#dmesg
usbcore:registered new interface driver usbserial
USB serial support registered for generic

usbcore:registere new interface driver usbserial_generic

usbserial:USB serial driver core
(end)

i was expecting the modem tn be mapped to a port,say ttyS0 or something but it aint happening...my big question is what do i do to map this modem to a port number?i just hope jdk is reading this!!!

It's been a long search on google and devilfinder,still cant find a solution . Looks like it's a general problem on fedora,a guy on ubuntu got it solved,tried it myself but didnt work out cos of differences in file names.....thinking of ditching fedora for another distro,painful indeed!!!

Ifconfig ouput is same as i have posted earlier...what got me even more bottled up was the fact that i was able to get 2 new modem work when i got them but when i really them they screwed me up big time...huawei modem showed up as cd-rom while the qualcomm modem gets detected and the next minutes its not detected

Please please please please use the code tags. This is a long thread and it makes finding any output you have posted very difficult and the output is very unreadable. Please please use the code tags. They are marked by "#" in the advanced menu. Just highlight the code output and click on "#" and they will be inserted. It output of iwconfig (not ifconfig) suggests that the wifi adapter is installed correctly and the problem is with your modem and not with the wifi adapter. I didn't understand your comments about the two other modems you have tried but that appears to be the problem.
