Fedora can't find wireless networks.

Hi, I'm kind of a new to Linux so please bear with me. I am trying to set up a router on a dual boot system. Everything seems to be working ok on Win7 but when i go on Fedora my network connections show no wireless or wired networks available. This is what I've looked into but I'm honestly pretty stumped.

iwlist scan finds the network i'm trying to connect to, but there's some stuff i'm confused about.

Re: Fedora can't find wireless networks.

You might have a hidden wireless network--Linksys routers do this by default.

The good news is that if scanning is showing anything it means your wireless is working--that is, Fedora can work with your wireless card.

I have a page on testing to see if it's NetworkManager or not that is the problem. You can try the steps there at


(By the way, it would be helpful to give the make of your wireless card, though as it is seeing networks, that probably isn't an issue).
