    I got my WLAN up with no difficulty. From the network-admin applet, i selected DHCP and everything works out of the box!

    Had my share of problems configuring Atheros WLAN in Redhat/Fedora.But it works like a charm in Ubuntu Breezy.

    Infact in my case its making use of mad wifi project.I also have a Wireless PCMCIA card using a Broadcom chipset which too doesnt work in Fedora/Redhat except for NDISwrapper solution.

    What problems are you facing in NDISwrapper?

    you need to use WinXP drivers. Not even 2k/2k3 drivers will do.
