I have the WPC54GS on FC5 on a T30 laptop. I've tried everything I can
think of to get WPA working, but so far it is not. I am working with
support at linuxant.com, but we haven't found the fix yet.
My card works fine with my linksys WRT54GS if I disable security and I
am in mixed mode. It usually takes a few minutes after booting to
finally talk with the router. I assume you've got your SSID either
broadcast or in your machine's network settings. Sorry, I'm not sure
what else to suggest.

If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an
infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even
considering if there are men on base. --Dave Barry
