What do I have to do to make Fedora 19 automatically recognize this wireless adapter? The installation media doesn't seem to see it, neither does the live desktop? I'd like to try fedora because Ubuntu is no longer a distro I want to use.

Thanks Michael

What problem are you running into? Can you please update the question with the output of lspci? We'll get an better idea of your hardware and what driver you might need.

There is more info displayed by lspci than I can possibly type into my phone... but the problem is that there simply is no wireless adapted recognized. The only network device shown by lspci is the built-in Intel 2gb controlller. I have only wifi available at this point, so plugging into the router is not an option (the joys of communal living)

Can you post that one line? If its intel hardware, it should generally work out of the box. You may be missing one of the intel firmware packages. In the mean time, you can connect your phone to wifi and tether your system to it via USB to install the packages. yum search intel firmware should give you a list of packages.
