  1. No such luck. I ran through the entire command list numerous times, with various methods of being root. First, tried logging in as normal user then opening terminal and 'su -' to root, then ran commands. Didn't work. Second, (after restart) I tried doing it by logging in as root and running them all directly. Didn't work. Third, (after restart), I tried going to System->Administration->Network and checking to see if the wireless was there. It was, but it was inactive. When I tried to activate it (by clicking its entry and clicking "Activate") it didn't work, and it gave
  2. Still no luck, I'm going to try starting over from scratch. You know what would be nice? A shell-script to do all of this automatically. If it doesn't already exist, someone should write it, as it seems all of this is just a simple shell command list anyways. It would also be nice if the shell script were packaged with the firmware, so that it would just require one download. I might try to do this myself... I'll let you guys know.
  3. Yep. I executed ALL commands as root, as you said. (Opened terminal, su with password, then copy-pasted each in turn.) There wasn't any problem until the last command (modprobe). It stated that the modprobe package didn't exist. So I tried installing it but couldn't find where to get it. Also... The drivers I used to use with NDISWrapper are the bcmwl5 ones... It worked fine in Ubuntu (easy as pie to set up wireless) but I've had no luck yet with F7.
  4. Tried this with no luck. Apparently, my Fedora 7 installation forgot modprobe. Are there any other simple ways of getting Broadcom chipset cards installed on F7? (I tried modprobe, and the command didn't exist. I also tried reboot, to no avail. And I simply copy-pasted all the commands you had here, so I'm not sure what went wrong.)
