I apologize, I left that out by accident. How do you pull up the actual
wireless network device?

Try using NetworkManager. You'll want NetworkManager-gnome for the GUI part
too (even if you aren't using GNOME - a KDE 4 Plasma applet is under
development, but at this point I can't really recommend it and we aren't
installing it by default); in its default configuration, NetworkManager
doesn't do all that much for wireless devices without a GUI.

I tried NM, and it configured everything else, I just can't get/find the wireless card driver in the list, and it doesn't see the wireless card even when the module is loaded.

on what type of machine is this happening? and what type of wireless card?


*O/s: Fedora 10
Kernel: #1 SMP Tue Nov 18 11:58:53 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Wireless NIC: Linksys* USB Wireless Adapter - WUSB54GC

USB Major information dealing with the WUSB54GC:

 iSerial                 3 1.0

I hope this is enough information, and will help me with this, as such I have seen other distributions like Ubuntu working with this particular USB stick(Google turns up a large resource, and it was using ndiswrapper on the windows drivers where I found the chipset for the NIC).
