Re: Is wireless support any better with FC5?

For me FC5 has been an absolute nightmare for wifi.  Everything worked
perfectly for me with a orinico supported pcmcia wifi card in FC4. 
Since upgrading, I can't get it to work at all.  The card is detected,
yet it never can connect to anything on any network.
