I'm setting up my wifi on my newly installed Fedora 14. I need to compile a driver as one of the steps to get my Wireless-N USB Network Adapter With Dual-Band model WUSB600n v2 working. When I run the command: make -C 2010_1215_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.DPO

I get: make[1]:gcc: Command not found
make[1]: *** [all] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/Nick/Desktop/2010_1215_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.DPO/tools'
make: *** [build tools] Error 2

I went to PackageKit and searched and found it, clicked on it, and clicked Apply, nothing happened. Then I went to Filters > Installed >, when I filter by only installed it comes up so it must be installed, then I filter by only available and it does not come up. I then go to the command line and type: pkcon search name gcc

It says that it is installed; libgcc-4.5.1-4.fc14.i686
It also says Message: repo-metadata-download-failed: Could not contact source 'fedora', so it will be disabled
repo-metadata-download-failed: Could not contact source 'updates', so it will be disabled.

Okay so it can't contact them because there is no internet on this computer.
I'm totally lost I need gcc so I can compile this so I can get on the net, what am I not understanding?

Have you seen this guide for getting that wifi dongle working in Fedora?

If that doesn't work, then I THINK this has a fairly decent chance of working:

1. From another computer which has Internet access download the following RPM files and save the to a USB drive:

2. Copy the above files to a new folder on you internet-less Fedora 14 machine
3. Open a terminal window by selecting Applications → System Tools → Terminal
4. In the terminal window, change to a root shell by typing: su - (the dash is important)
5. Change to the directory where you saved the files. For example if you saved them to a directory call "rpms" in you home directory, you would type: cd /home/<yourusername>/rpms
5. Enter this command: rpm -ihv *.rpm

With any luck, that should install all the necessary packages to compile the driver.
