Missing intel 2230 wireless firmware!

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I just installed Fedora 17 on a HP dvt-7000 quad edition and much to my surprise I found that wireless did not work. The system uses the intel centrino 2230 wifi and the associated firmware was not found when the system booted. I went to http://intellinuxwireless.org/?p=iwlwifi&n=downloads and downloaded the firmware for the wireless and copied it to /lib/firmware and rebooted. This time the wireless came up ( but does not see my 5GHz access point). Jerry (HowTos)
