ao i recently put a fresh install on f9 on my dell inspiron 1501 laptop
i new i was going to have trouble with my wireless because i had touble with it on f8
i tried to get the firmware working with dangermouse's script i think that part is ok
but network manager shows my acess point sometimes and sometimes it doesn't and
when it does and i try to connect it tries to connect for awhile and says network disconected
my wireless card acording to lspci is
