Wireless was working on Fedora 2, now it isn't

Ok, I looked all over and couldn't find this scenario. I have Fedora 2 on a Toshiba laptop. I can use it with my ethernet connection at home, but when I go to school and try to use the wireless, it does not work. It worked for one day, then for some reason it stopped and now the computer can't even find the internal wireless connection (or so it looks to me.) I think I need it to find the wireless and then I need to get it to activate. I really have no experience with Linux, so detailed help would be appreciated.

It appears based on previous posts that people want to see the following:

[root@localhost sysconfig]# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

I'm not seeing anything in your lspci output besides your wired ethernet. What kind of wireless card is this? Is it internal or PCMCIA?
