I installed Fedora 17 on my Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 laptop, but the wireless card is not showing up when I do
sudo iwconfig. I am quite sure that it is only a driver issue, because when I boot into Windows 8, the wireless works fine. I have searched the Internet, but I can not a driver that works. I do not even know which wireless card is in it.
If anyone knows what wireless card is in a Z580, or if anyone knows which driver I need, please help. Thanks in advance.
lspci -vv reported the wireless card as an Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. I loaded
iwl3945, thinking that would resolve the problem. But it still didn't show up when I ran
sudo ifconfig or
sudo iwconfig. Any ideas?
