I have just fresh install FC7. However, it does not even show that it knows my laptop (Presario V5120NR) has a wireless card (last time, in FC6, at least FC6 knows that). How can I set up the driver for my Wireless card? I have tried to follow forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=156282 but system-config-network still does not show my wireless card. The wireless network is enabled in BIOS. Anyone knows solution? Thanks in advance.

Start by going to System/Services and starting NetworkManager and NetworkManagerDispatch. Also set them checked so that they start as services upon booting.
