Looking at Dell's website, it's unclear what the wired NIC is.  They use
the euphemistic "10/100/1000 Gigabit" description, which is almost

The wireless is EITHER an Intell PRO 3945A/G OR the Dell 1490.  I don't
think FC3 (or FC5 for that matter) has drivers for those.  You probably
need to use the Windows drivers under ndiswrapper.  See


for details on that.  As to the wired NIC, do an "lspci -v" and see what
ethernet controllers you have.  We can advise you better that way.

I am using a Dell Latitude D820 with FC5.  The wired network card is:
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5752
Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
       Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 01cc
       Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 90
       Memory at dcef0000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
       Capabilities: <access denied>

Wireless network card from Dell True Mobile 1394:
0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Unknown device 4311 (rev 01)
       Subsystem: Dell Unknown device 0007
       Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 177
       Memory at dcffc000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
       Capabilities: <access denied>

Hope this helps.  I know the old Latitude 600m that I have worked with
the wired network card with FC3 and it is was also a Broadcom card.
