    Hi Friends,

    One of my friend has Compaq Presario V3029A LAPTOP. He has configured WIFI provided by our college on Windows XP (it was a breeze).

    Now we are planning to configure it in FC5 (Fedora core 5)......

    The college has given us following details.......

    1. Two DNS server IPs: which I will insert it in /etc/resolv.conf in following manner:

    nameserver A.B.C.D
    nameserver W.X.Y.Z

    where A.B.C.D & W.X.Y.Z are any two DNS server ips provided by the college. (My friend has it , i don't remember it exactly)


    2. Then Second thing College has given us is a static ip for the LAPTOP. Thus using "netconfig" command I will assign static ip to the laptop.

    3. Third thing which college has given us is proxy server ip. How to use it and where to insert it.

    I know FC5 has wifi manager under internet.

    First and foremost i will click wifi manager and make the laptop search the wifi network......

    Can some please tell what to do after that.........and how to use that proxy server ip.

    I mean what all files I am suppose to edit and what all daemons n services i m suppose to start.

    What if LAPTOP fails to recognise the wifi network ?

    I would really appreciate if you guys and gals can give some links for the wifi drivers if needed or any step by step configuration documentation for FC5

    Actually i need to take the all the details and drivers with me to college bcoz while configuring there would be no internet and hence i can't take any online help.

    Waiting for your reply.......
