Fedora 17 is not stable. It has only hit alpha yet. It's going to have numerous bugs until it hits Beta/Gold. Please use Fedora 16 for the time being and thank you for filing a bug report.

you are using a live version, via USB, this could be the problem if you install it and does not work, you can use this free gnu driver, remember fedora 17 yet not stable. ""http://www.mediafire.com/?t4y413u3i9gs723
