I recently installed Fedora Core 4 in my computer, and I want to configure my wireless adapter: Linksys WUSB11 Version 2.6. Well it uses the driver at76c503a, and I got it from Berlios. The compilation went well, and in the installation I got an error in the middle of everything (a directory not found), but it was ignored by the process, and the installation finished without reporting errors., so I guess I have the driver installed already. The adapter, after that didn't show in the Internet Configuration Wizard, so, I made a file "ifcfg-wlan0" with the following content, and placed it in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts:
wIRELESS_EMC_KEY=(my wireless enc. key)
DHCP_HOSTNAME=(my hostaname's name)
My problem is that I can't still see the wireless adapter in the Internet Configuration Wizard, and most important, I cannot connect.
I am using this machine to multiple boot and two of the OSs are Windows XP and Mandrake 10.1 where the adapter needed almost no configuration at all (I didn't have to load the driver in Mandrake, it detected the adapter and it was only a matter of inserting the relevant parameters).
I will appreciate the help you can give me to set my Internet connection in Fedora. Most of the commands I have in Mandrake do not work here, like "iwconfig", "lsmod", "modprobe", and many more.
