Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install SMC 8028w network card

3. Download and install firmware from http://prism54.org/
4. Configure wireless interface with system-config-network
5. Try to activate wireless interface

I'm having the exact same problem with FC3 and latest patches.

Upgraded kernel to latest version available (2.6.11-1.1287_FC4) - problem still
Please attach the output of running "lspci -n" on the box w/ the SMC 8028w
Please be specific with which firmware file you are using and what other
versions you have tried. Also, how did you rename the firmware file
downloaded from prism54.org? That seems to be important...
Have you had this card working with a previous Linux installation? Do you
know of others successfully using this card under Linux?
