I am using fujitsu s6220 with fedora 7 and i had these problems. If you have fedora 7 on laptops similar to mine (s6210, s6230 etc) you may consider the following solutions to your problems, if any.

Intel wireless 2200BG
From wiki:
To enable the wireless interfaces on Centrino laptops and other computers that use Intel PRO/Wireless adapters, copy the firmware files to /lib/firmware/ on your system. You may download these files from the IPW2200 Project Website: http://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/.

Reboot your system after installing firmware files, to ensure that the adapter initializes correctly.

You may disable the device profiles in System > admin > network if you hav not done so.

Intel 82801db/dbl/dbm ac'97 audio controller
Edit /etc/modprobe.conf
Comment out the options for sound
#options snd-card-0 index=0
#options snd-intel8x0 index=0

Restart. Go to System > admin > sound card detection. Test your sound card.
