wpa supplicant and iwlwifi

Hi! I have F7 installed and it can see the intel pro 3945. But I have problem activating it. The router is set to using WPA only. Do I need to instal wpa supplicant in order for the wireless card to connect?

yes if you are using the WPA encryption method you would need to have that installed.
rpm -q wpa_supplicant
to check if you already have it installed.
