Unhappy trouble with eth0 and wlan0

I have recently installed Fedora 8 (x86_64) on an Acer Aspire laptop with AMD Athlon64/x2.
When the system boots up, I get the following failures:

eth0....failed;no link present. Check cable
wlan0....SIOCSIFFLAGS: invalid arguement.

I am unable to configure these devices in the Network Configuration window.
What should I do? (Besides buy a Mac)

Post info of hardware with this command. ' /sbin/lspci -v '
As far as eth0 I assume it is a wired nic and you have no cable connected to it.

Hello widger,

You can probably stop the eth0 failure during booting by opening the Network Configuration utility (System>Administration>Network) and editing the eth0 device to not be activated when the computer starts. The wlan0 error will probably stop when you get the wireless card configured. That's where Brian1 is going with that lspci information. But also mentioning the make and model of the card, if you know it or can get it from your documentation might bring help from someone who has set up that same card.

Not sure if this will help but is a link for the AR700 wireless card.

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...hlight=atheros

I assume you had the wireless card up and working on the previous distro, with the same router/Access Point configuration before? If so what were you using?

ndiswrapper? any wpa? MadWiFi programme

Thanks for help everybody - I've had to abandon this project.
After trying to install some drivers etc, I am in over my head and spending all my free time trying to get this thing working.
Maybe during my vacation this summer I'll get back into it....
