I've been using Fedora 13 for around six months, but only with a wired connection in my room. I took my laptop to a college library that has Wifi, but when I turn my system on it doesn't detect any wireless networks at all. What could be the problem? How do I fix it?
Wireless configuration is everything but easy. For a start, you should collect the following information
From what you describe, I guess that there is a wireless NIC installed and working, but the search shows nothing, either because the search tool has some issue or because the card has some issue regarding searches. I'd suggest running
(Ok, I doubt this is still useful for the OP, but I hope it is for people looking on some tips on how to debug wireless issues.)
