You need drivers for it.

What exactly is it called, and what is the model number?

Please don't bump your topic with so many posts.

Instead, use the "Edit" option.

Being annoying isn't going to make anyone want to help you faster.

At the moment, I'm looking for the drivers for you (have been for awhile now). I'll post when/if I find anything.


Update(s)
--------
*What kernel are you using? uname -r

Here are three sites that may help you.

Note that most recent kernels/distros support your piece of hardware. I'm not sure why you're using a testing distro (Fedora), and that's your buisness... but if none of that helps you, you may wish to try another distro.

Best of luck.
