fedora wireless issues

exactly what it says on the tin.

I'm using a Dell Inspiron n4010, it has a WLAN 1501 Half Mini-Card. I'm dual booting Windows Seven, and Fedora 15.


The problem is that fedora doesn't even detect my wireless card.
Any help at all is appreciated

It wasn't a hairline fracture, just a muscle soreness. I was wondering how to fix it faster than a c...

I'm having a minor problem though, namely I got slow and ended up getting a good hit in the arm and now...

Headphones all the way :] they make me feel like I'm really Gorden blasting headcrabs... although my gun sure does feel a lot like a keyboard... and is that the edge of a moniter I see?
