Red face Fedora 13: Cisco AE2500 Wireless USB?

I recently installed Fedora 13 -- I plan to upgrade to 15, but, not much to my surpise my Cisco AE2500 Wireless USB card is not being detected by Fedora 13. Has anyone had this card and know how to get it working?

I'm sure it's a driver issue, but search results haven't turned up much as of yet. I also can't get a wired connection to my desktop, though I might just have to suck it up and move these beast of a machine to the living room temporarily so I can get a connection on it. I'm utilizing my Windows partition right now.

Re: Fedora 13: Cisco AE2500 Wireless USB?

Hello ethabelle

In Linux, it's the chipset within the device that counts, not the manufacturers part number.

As it's usb, the command:

may give us some clues to run that down.

Be aware though, that Fedora 13 has reached the end of its supported life and it's possible that the things that may be needed to make it work could be hard to find.

Any chance you could use Fedora 15?
