ndiswrapper Fedora FC6 Intel 3945ABG problem (not showing)

After trying to install the intel 3945abg on a Dell 9400 running FC6:
# iwconfig wlan0

          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
but running the GUI 'Network Device Control', when adding a new wireless connection, nothing shows up;

# dmesg

Welcome to LQ!

Like most Intel wireless chipsets, this one has a native linux driver. That is going to be a lot easier to use under FC6 than ndiswrapper. Fedora tends to be rather ndiswrapper unfriendly.
