2. approach your accesspoint until your Laptop starts detecting the wifi, while the wifi-signal is still not strong enought to connect.

Sorry for my bad english.
this bug report is not specific enough. What exactly means "freeze" here?
What exactly are you doing at "3. try to connect"?
"freeze" means fedora does not respond to any keyboard or mouse input
- go to the top panel
- Click on the Network icon
- click on the Network icon of the pulldown menu and choose "select network"
- Select your network and click on Connect

version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
