Just wondering if anyone has this wireless card and has gotten it working successfully with Fedora 18/19 at all. When Fedora 19 was in Alpha it worked during a live boot via cd/dvd but not after installing to my system.

I have found a git that has the driver source but was unable to make/make install the driver last time I tried. I will be reworking this tonight.

According to the Linux kernel wireless page here:, this hardware is supported by the kernel itself and should function.

If it doesn't, I suggest you file a bug against the kernel at and let the maintainers know. They'll be happy to look into it.
