That card should just work. Has for me through the last few releases of Fedora (9/10/11/12) and worked well back around Fedora 7 / 8 with some work. You should be seeing wireless access points available as soon as the OS is installed and you boot to the desktop for the first time. Click the icon it the top panel for a drop down listing of access points.

Hope it continues to work. You shouldn't have any trouble with that adapter. It's been pretty reliable throughout the releases and with most all of the other variations of Linux that I've tried.

It seems that the wireless connection is not detected when I switch from wireless to wired then back to wireless; is there some way to 'repair ' the connection similar to the way Windows works. Or some way to manually tell Fedora to reinstall drivers?

Thanks,
Al
