fedora wireless issues

Postby natey » Tue Jul 12, 2011 7:16 pm UTC

exactly what it says on the tin.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron n4010, it has a WLAN 1501 Half Mini-Card. I'm dual booting Windows Seven, and Fedora 15.


The problem is that fedora doesn't even detect my wireless card.
Any help at all is appreciated

How do you know it's not being detected? What is the output of ifconfig? What about iwconfig?
If you don't have walls, why would you need Windows?
