I have a nettop, Foxconn NT-510-A-B-A-NA, with the 8191SE, Fedora 13 and 14 Preview don't recognize it. Ubuntu 10.10 recognizes and configures the chip. I don't think the drivers are in the kernel but there are Linux drivers available

We only include drivers that are in official upstream kernel (i.e. not from staging, not from vendor site, etc). Try http://rpmfusion.org/, I _think_ realtek wlan devices could be supported by kmod-staging.

I'm closing this bug with upstream resolution, that mean we (or someone from community :-) will work on include realtek drivers in kernel.org .
