That device may have the Broadcom 4320 USB chipset which reportedly works with the rndis_wlan driver included with Fedora kernels nowadays. See more about that at Linux Wireless
. Like a lot of drivers being developed, it has its share of problems apparently. But it shouldn't hurt to try it. See if the module is in the list of loaded modules. You may need to boot with the device connected and on...
If it's there, maybe your network can be found in the list of available networks in the NetworkManager panel applet right now. If so, try connecting. If the module is not loading, you can try manually loading it and see if that works...
service NetworkManager restart
No promises with any of that. I've never used that device or read much about it around here.
Then, according to Linux Wireless, ndiswrapper with a Windows XP driver may work with it. Ndiswrapper is a kind of software "adapter" that can make a Windows XP, W2K, W98 wireless driver work in Linux. Ndiswrapper does not come installed in Fedora. But it can be yum installed if you can connect by wire, or the files can be downloaded on another machine and transferred to this machine and installed offline. Then the Windows driver is installed using ndiswrapper. If it's going to work, NetworkManager will then find available wireless networks. Anyway. The details and the rest of that is available if you need it. But that is the gist of ndiswrapper.
