I am trying to activate my wireless network card but all I get is:
Determining IP information for wlan0... failed.

When I type iwlist wlan0 scan into Terminal this is what I get:

[root@localhost ~]# iwlist wlan0 scan
Warning: Driver for device wlan0 recommend version 18 of Wireless Extension,
but has been compiled with version 17, therefore some driver features
may not be available...

wlan0 Scan completed :
Cell 01 - Address: 16:36:74:F4:97:17
Protocol:IEEE 802.11b
Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11)
Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Encryption key:off
Bit Rate:1 Mb/s
Bit Rate:2 Mb/s
Bit Rate:5.5 Mb/s
Bit Rate:6 Mb/s
Bit Rate:9 Mb/s
Bit Rate:11 Mb/s
Bit Rate:12 Mb/s
Bit Rate:18 Mb/s

As you can see I have turned off all Encryption and I have set Fedora up for Auto and Ad-Hoc and Auto also set the Network name (ESSID) up for Bardells
But I still get the same error when trying to adtivate it Determining IP information for wlan0... failed.

Has anyone any ideas??
