Are you trying to install FC on a wireless router, or set up a wireless router? If you want to set it up, the wireless router should work when you plug it in. If you have a wireless card on your computer, unless it detects it right away, you need to get nciswrapper and get the windows drivers of your wireless card. Follow the instructions at http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/wiki/Installation. You can then set it up like a regular internet connection after that.

oh, ok. I was confused. I haven't even considered the possibility of using a pc as a wireless router, but I'm sure somebody somewhere has done it. Maybe not someone in the fedora world. You might have more success with debian, slackware, or gentoo people since those distributions are more CLI/hacker based (I guess that's what you'd call it). It doesn't look like anyone has had any experience here from the number of replies .
