Hi all.

To my surprise, I installed Fedora 17 two days ago and my wireless was working right out of the box. That is until it lost connection... This seems to happen at random, but for some period of time I will have internet and things are going smooth - then out of no where I lose connection and am unable to reconnect until I restart my computer. I'm not sure what is going on. I've had issues with this card before.

If there is any more info I can provide please let me know.

I'm looking for ways to figure out what could be going wrong - and then of course, fix it.

Thanks, Nathan
