Re: Fedora 17 support on RTL8188ce
I had the same problem with a Toshiba S855D laptop, Fedora 17 detected the Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless card which was disconnecting as you mentioned, but it failed to detect the Atheros AR8162/8166/8168 PCI-E Fast Ethernet controller (NDIS 6.20) card. When I checked Network manager only the wirless card was present.
Please note my system was dual booting with Windows 7. I eventually took the laptop back and I am currently looking for something to replace it.
