http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2835777/egyptian.gif Miracle TWO! laugh.gif Also my Fedora 15 LXDE, now, have a working wireless connection...
Resolution is -maybe- a lot similar than for Scientific Linux.

When my attempts fails, I try to connect using the Wireless Assistant... and receive a message: "Connection failed" everytime. But...

... But when I attempt to connect -finally!- using not a specific software, but the panel-applet called Network Manager, my attempt go right and my wireless connection, suddenly, start!

So, I was go on my Fedora installation and try to search a "network manager" applet, but it isn't at all! wacko.gif
Attempts to connect using the Wireless Assistant and Wi-Fi Radar package were -logically- bad, one m ore. mad.gif No wireless connection start, when I call for it. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2835777/BangHead1.gif

Last resource, I opened Yumex and search for a package to install some Network Manager (anyone, for instance)... and see a package called Network Manager!
So, I install that package and, after all, reboot.

Rebooted, on my tray, I see a little icon: Network Manager! Clicking on that icon, I see my wireless connection. Clicking to activate the wireless connection, I see a request: "password". I give the key for my wireless connection and... my wireless connection, finally, start! http://th166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/rdshear/Smiley%20Faces/th_smiley-face-thumbs-up.gif http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2835777/egyptian.gif http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2835777/egyptian.gif

With RHEL6 the package that handles all network related things is Network Manager.
Previous versions had other packages like the network daemon.
This is all past times. Network Manager is your new friend wink.gif
