http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have a Intel WiFi Link 5300 [8086:4236] on my HP EliteBook 8530. It correctly scans and locates my AP (wireless router), but connecting to it takes some time, and I get a dialogue asking for the network passkey. Regardless of the correct key being filled in, the dialogue will repeat and eventually the connection will fail. The network itself works, and I have tried the WiFi card and computer with other Linuxen (f.i. Mandriva 2009.1 MLO) where it works as expected. What can be the problem in Fedora, and how do I fix it?
