[quote]This usb dongle seems a bit problematic. First let's check a few things. Are you totally updated, that is, have you kept up with the updates that F14 has released since you installed? If not, run:

su <enter>
<your password> <enter>
yum update

Then just answer the prompts until it is finished. If you're updated, then, forget that part.
