First wireless is not a requirement, I do not use wireless anywhere for PCs as
wired connection is in all aspects (except for the wire) better.

Second Fedora has more strict Free software policy:
	The proprietary software and drivers discussed may be available from
	the respective owners and other vendors. Fedora Project instead highly
	recommends that you support the right vendors and get hardware that
	can work with completely free and open source software

Since that time everything works out of the box.  Low-end Free software
friendly card is really not such a financial burden.  The same can be applied
to WiFi USB - when one was unfortunate to buy/get Free software hostile
hardware in the first place.
