Help, I need somebody as the Beatles sang.

by Dafydd Forum moderator / January 22, 2012 3:26 AM PST

Has anybody managed to get Fedora 16 to connect to a wireless router?
I have all the details to hand but have failed.
I have spent many hours on the 'net researching it but no joy.
Can somebody walk me through this?

Clarification Request
I've connected too many versions.

But usually, it all comes down to the hardware and if it is supported. Given the details so far, I can't offer any ideas.

Why not try another distro?

Thank you Bob, this is true. I find that Linux Mint works well and will go down that road.
