Network freezes/ Realtek RTL-8185 wireless lan controller

Hello all Smilie

I am using a Realtek RTL-8185 wireless lan controller on my Dell dimension 4800 to try to connect to the internet. my distro is fedora 11. I go to enable wireless and my computer freezes, I have done some upgrading and building on the computer for a year now but I have always had problems with any distro and getting that computer to connect to the internet. I had been using windows for a while but got a massive virus and cant kill it so I am going back to my new love... Linux. So I put a hard drive with fedora 11 and a wireless card in the computer and loaded it up, It loads fine but when ever i try to do anything networking wise it will freeze. I went to the networking icon and saw it was enabled but not wireless I went to enable it and the computer freezes. any help would be great. If you need any more info let me know.

A little googling will find this wireless NIC was giving Linux severe indigestion -- in 2008. Smilie Try Fedora 12.
