problem with wireless network connect

Hi all,

I have a problem with wireless network connection. The Linux is Fedora 6, wireless card is intel 2915ABG. I got the latest driver version installed. It used to work fine for wireless. But after I update the kernel to a little bit higher version. The machine can not connect the wireless network. From the available network list provided by network manager, I can see my home wireless network, but can not connect it. Even I turned back to the previous kernel version, I still can not connect it as before. I am not familiar with the configuration commands for wireless. Can anyone give me any help. Thanks in anticipate

Not familiar with that module for that card.
What module does it use?

Also if it is not part of the kernel source and or built in the precompiled fedora kernels then you needed to install a module external to that kernel. So if you upgrade the kernel you need to go through the same process to get the module to work with the new kernel. If there was a website you followed for the card install post that.
