I'm testing out Fedora 16 (GNOME) on a Samsung N150 Plus netbook (32-bit) using a live USB. While I can access the internet via a wired connection, the wireless doesn't appear to be working: the left-hand column under "Network Settings" shows "wired" and "network proxy", but does not have "wireless". I can use wireless on both the existing Ubuntu 11.10 OS and live images for other Ubuntu variants, but not with Fedora 16 or Debian 6.0 Squeeze. Anyone know what's wrong with my computer?

Propably you need a driver for the network card, and that is easiest done when fedora is installed. If you want a "fully" working live-cd, try Ubuntu.
