I am using a Netgear WG511T wireless LAN card on my notebook. I used up until a couple of days ago OpenSuse 10.0 and the card worked straight out of the box just fine. However, after reading last issue of Linuxformat I decided to give Fedora Core 5 a go. All works great except for my WiFi card. Fedora ignores the card completely. If it works under OpenSuse, I assume there is a Linux driver for the card. That was one of the reasons why I bought this card in first place. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Do you still have SUSE installed? If so, post the output from lspci and lsmod.

LinuxQuestions has quite a an interesting thread on this http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?t=437253

It seems that there is a Linux driver, but for whatever reason it isn't included with Fedora Core 5 - most likely due to licensing complications.
