I am trying to get the Toshiba M100 Wireless Card working - it is an Intel Proset 3945abg wireless card. I followed the instructions on another post here successfully, but the wireless card still cant be detected.

It is also not showing in hwbrowser.

I already successfully installed the ipw3945 driver (by running yum install ipw3945*, and it completed successfully. I am running Fedora Core 5. I followed all of the instructions, but when I run the /sbin/ipw3945d daemon, I get the following:

ipw3945d - regulatory daemon
