Since I wanted my computer back up and running with net access as quickly as possible, I installed Fedora 2 today hoping that my wifi card would work. Sadly it didn't. The modules are loaded and I tried using iwconfig, but no go. Thinking that maybe the dwl-650 card was at fault, I tried using another card (Netgear ma401) which I know works (using it right now in my laptop), but the results were the same. I'm starting to think that maybe it's the pcmcia<->pci adapter that's stopped working.
When I try to activate either card with system-config-network, I get the error message "orinoco_cs device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization."
Anyone have any suggestions?
Btw, sorry for not wrapping my email. I'm using webmail and the composer doesn't have any wrapping settings.
