I need help in connecting my computer to my wireless router The computer is a Dell Inspiron 530 running Linux Fedora 9. I installed a Dell 1505 Wireless LAN PCIe card, and I subsequently installed the Broadcom wl.ko driver made for this card (among others). As I result the computer appears to be aware of both the card and the driver

lspci reports: 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03)

lsmod reports: wl 2434596 0 ieee80211crypt 8324 2 ieee80211crypt_tkip,wl

I also set eth1 as my wireless interface. This interface appears to be aware of the LAN broadcast by my wireless router. The router (which works well with other wireless devices) broadcasts two networks named "timothy" and "timothy5". iwlist eth1 scanning reports: eth1 Scan completed : Cell 01 - Address: 00:1F:90:E4:20:8C ESSID:"Q70I0" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz (Channel 1) Quality:1/5 Signal level:-85 dBm Noise level:-92 dBm Encryption key:on Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s 11 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s 48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s Cell 02 - Address: 00:26:F2:96:03:D7 ESSID:"Home15" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.427 GHz (Channel 4) Quality:1/5 Signal level:-87 dBm Noise level:-92 dBm IE: IEEE 802.11i/WPA2 Version 1 Group Cipher : TKIP Pairwise Ciphers (2) : CCMP TKIP Authentication Suites (1) : PSK IE: Unknown: DD270050F204104A000110104400010210470010000000000000100000000026F29603D7103C000103 IE: WPA Version 1 Group Cipher : TKIP Pairwise Ciphers (2) : CCMP TKIP Authentication Suites (1) : PSK Encryption key:on Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s 9 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s 48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s Cell 03 - Address: 00:1F:90:EA:1E:32 ESSID:"FRKO1" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz (Channel 6) Quality:1/5 Signal level:-85 dBm Noise level:-92 dBm Encryption key:on Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s 11 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s 48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s Cell 04 - Address: 00:1F:90:E5:14:1E ESSID:"FZLF1" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz (Channel 6) Quality:1/5 Signal level:-80 dBm Noise level:-92 dBm Encryption key:on Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s 11 Mb/s; 12 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s 48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s Cell 05 - Address: C4:3D:C7:6C:76:6C ESSID:"timothy" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11) Quality:4/5 Signal level:-64 dBm Noise level:-92 dBm IE: IEEE 802.11i/WPA2 Version 1 Group ...
