Thanks for posting the response.

I have taken this approach because I have been responding to the mailing list from 17-23 April and I still do not have an answer. The previous posting was titled :-
    "Fedora 18, how do I get nl80211 or cfg80211 driver ?‏"

The last status is:-
>Hmm...i too faced the same issue. Installing the libnl-3.0 and
>libnl-genl-3.0 resolved the issue
>for me.I have 'libnl-3.0' but I have not been able to locate the 'libnl-genl-3.0' library.

I will provide any answers to any diagnostic question posted to me.

Best Regards
