http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I just finished installing Fedora 11 on a Dell Inspiron 6000. After some tinkering, I was able to get the Broadcom 4318 wireless card to start working. After a restart, I booted into Fedora and attempted to connect to my wireless network. Five seconds later Fedora freezes. I cannot move the mouse, execute any commands (except hold the power button down), or access any log files. The only confirmation I get is that my router does receive a signal from the wireless card, shortly before dying. I do have a a LiveUSB version of Fedora, would that allow me to access any relevant log files? (HowTos)
