I have also installed FreeBSD 6.0 on the same hardware and the wireless card 
works perfectly, so this is definitely not a harware problem. It used to work 
under Linux as well, but not anymore.

Hi, here I am with again some more info. I have changed the firmware on the
wireless network card and now things are working again!
The Cisco website proved very unhelpful, but I finally found some images here,
if anyone should have the same problem:

I am having this same problem with FC5 on my laptop. I was able to replicate the
problem on slckware 10.2. The problem is all packets are being dropped. if you
run iwevent you find that the broadcast packets for DHCP are also dropped. I
dont know if it matters at this stage of the process but there is no entry in
the route tables for the network.
