Fedroa 14 root and wi-fi problem.

I am using Fedora 14. I got two problems after installation:
1) After installation when I tried login through root it said bad authentication failure. After login through restricted user I tried to test su in terminal which worked with same password.
2) It doesn't have any wireless firmware enabled as it says wireless firmware missing.. So do anybody can tell the steps or package name for same.

Many distributions do not allow direct root access; it's a security measure but you can modify these settings in /etc/pam.d/gdm and /etc/ssh/sshd_config

What type of wireles card do you have (run lspci, or dmesg). You may need to download and install the drivers for your particular NIC. Take a look here for a list of available wireless drivers: Drivers - Linux Wireless

I will try to find out whatever you said.
ABout the wireless card I am using Dell Inspiron 1545, which have supported all other Linux distros but it just gives problem in case of Fedora only.
