[tim at suspishus ~]$ /sbin/lspci | grep ireless
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02)

It uses whatever driver it finds automatically, as came with the
original installation.  I've not added anything, it worked out of the
box, so to speak.

At least the networking works, even if the LED doesn't work
properly.  ;-)

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)
