Talking Wireless Network Card Not Reconized

I am having some problem with my wireless networking card for Fedora 8. It seems not to reconize it. If someone can help me here is the informaiton on the wireless card: Linksys Wireless-B 2.4GHz, Model # WPC11 ver. 4

If anyone can help me it would be greatly appriciated.

Thank You,

Josh Foote

You have to install the right driver for the card. What I read from google says that the older versions had a prism chipset, and the v4 is using RTL8180.
Try these drivers:
(They have your card listed by the way)
You probably have to download the cvs version:
3) new kernels >= 2.6.12 are supported only by the CVS version of both old rtl8180-sa2400 and newer drivers.
You can also look if Fedora has rtl8180 in it's own repositories. At least Gentoo has it in portage.
Good luck
