http://forums.fedoraforum.org – 1- I just installed Fedora 12 on my Gateway laptop. It picked up my ethernet card w/o any problems, but it failed to pick up my wireless card. Below i cut and pasted the output of 'ifconfig -a", can someone help please. When you give instructions, please remember that i am new with all this.
