    hi,
    i just installed a fedora 8 but while the wired network works fine..
    the wireless is trying to connect but after 2-3 minutes i get the message that is been disconnect..

    is this has to do with network adapter drivers/..?(if it has then how to make it work?/)
    or is it just something elese

    Hi psychobeauty,

    set a fixed value for the wireless channel in the router configuration and set the encryption to WPA/WPA2.

    Best regards,

    Olli
