Is the adapter working? Have you tried to first connect without having security set on the router? If it doesn't work unsecured, check out:

HI.  The adapter is definitely working.  I  have fedora 7 and vista installed on the same laptop.  In vista - no problem.  Back in fedora, i went in to the network config setting and options for wlan.    the detected mac address is correct  and I entered the key correctly.  The is a part where i am to select , master,  ad-hoc,  managed and auto.  not sure which one to select here.  does this info help?
