Hello,

Thank you for the reply. I really hope I am not wasting your time here as it occurs that the issue may be with Fedora and not Madwifi - I am referring to the documentation here where it refers to building the kernel if no wireless extensions exist. The card is just not listing with lspci -nn so I assume the os is not seeing it. When I ran dmesg there were no errors reported, but no mention of wlan or ath_pci as mentioned here.

By the way, it's a dual boot machine and the card is working under Windows.

Many thanks
//Simon
