Can you please give us the output of "lspci | egrep -i wireless"?

I myself have a broadcom that works with drivers from RPMFusion[1]. I
don't know a lot about Toshiba. The output I requested will give us more
info.

You could try the users mailing list[2], which sees a lot more traffic
than this one. You can also try ask.fedoraproject.org[3].

I'll try that if I don't the answer here. But I have a good feeling ;-)

Too funny. So I found a page which describes using ndiswrapper etc. And I followed the instructions. Pity it waits to the end to say the process only works with XP/98 drivers. I had used the Win7X86 driver. How do I undo ndiswrapper so that I can try again with the XP driver? I just tried performing the instructions again but of course it tells me the driver is already installed.

Ah! I think I know this one ;)

Set up rpmfusion repositories and install the kmod-staging package. That
should do it. I recently set my EEEPc up and it uses the same hardware
iirc. :)

http://www.rpmfusion.org

yum install kmod-staging

This is the question on askfedora:

I just mailed you the solution, you can let the ndiswrapper approach
be. :)
