Hm... when I try to add new device in system-config-network I can choose only eth* (though I can write there wlan0 manually), but I don't know which adapter to choose, because mine does not seems to be listed there... I think it should be detected and set automatically like in previous versions of fedora.
Hmmm...my wlan0 shows-up there automatically...Bill?

kudzu -p -c network? (Or does s-c-network use HAL these days?)


what about adding
alias wlan0 bmc43xx_mac80211 to modprobe.conf ?
does system-config network detect it than?

Hm... the system-config-network then shows it in the hardware list and allows me to create a device. If I run ifup wlan0 however, I get this error:
Error for wireless request "Set Bit Rate" (8B20) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.

And it fails to connect - but that is OK, since I don't have there any wireless network I have access to...

Maybe I should try eth1, as kudzu find it as eth1? Or is wireless supposed to be handled by NetworkManager completely?
