Do you have the wpasupplicant package installed? You will need it
assuming your AP is set to WPA/WPA2.

Your device is being recongnized o/w you would not have seen "wlan0"
You will have to play around with the wpasupplicant utilities and the
settings in the files for wlan0 in /etc/sysconfig/network directories
(IIRC) - I have not used Fedora for quite a while so the above dir
path is a recollection.
In Debian 6.0, I have the following setup for my netbook with an
Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01).
/etc/network/interfaces (for WPA2 with ssid visible)
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid <ssid of your WiFi AP>
wpa-psk <encrypted pass phrase> (see below)
# cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf (generated using wpa_passphrase)
ssid="<your WiFi ssid>"
#psk="your pass phrase"
psk=<encrypted pass phrase>
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
