Hello there, I'm very new to Linux and this forum, and I am having trouble getting my D-Link DWL G520+ card working..

I have been searching google and I have seen things that say they support it, but I dont actually know how to get them working... Does anyone know how to set this up?

using: Fedora Core 4, 64 bit

Thanks
Matt

Have you taken a look at this thread?

Obviously though you would use the drivers for FC4 instead of FC2 which they have

Apparently we have a how-to thread on setting up the madwifi drivers as well

I'm having a bit of trouble with the second link... It says i need to install a PGP key... but I can't install it becuase I cant get on the internet from linux to do so... What could I do?

What is asking you for a PGP Key? Did you mean GPG key? If so then you will not be able to do this using YUM obviously since you don't have a current internet connection on your linux system. You will have to download the files and put them on a CD from a computer that does have an internet connection. Or if you are dual booting this with windows you could always download the files in windows and in Fedora set up your NTFS driver so you can read the windows partition and then copy the files over to your linux partition.

Basically, I run:

yum install madwifi

and it says that i am set up to use a PGP key for installed software (it says in brackets that this is a good thing), but it also says I need to aquire a key.

BTW Yum and Apt are the linux equivalents of Microsofts windows update feature. These are better though as there are multiple repositories you can choose from and nice little GUI apps to go with both of them that allow you to keep your system updated.
