Description of problem:
When booting up, to 2.6.17-1.2174.2.1_FC5.netdev.8 kernel with the bcm43xx
wireless network driver, the system locks ups at the network if a wired
connection is present.  Without the wired connection, NetworkManager never
connects to my WPA wireless network.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel 2.6.17-1.2174.2.1_FC5.netdev.8
How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install 2.6.17-1.2174.2.1_FC5.netdev.8
2. Connect wired network to eth0 device
3. Reboot
Actual results:
System locks up at the eth0 network device

Expected results:
System boots up normally with network connection on eth0

Additional info:
This may be a duplicate to 184440 kernel/bcm43xx lockup report.

Without a wired connection, NetworkManager attemts to connect to last good
wireless network but never connects.  
Also - I have a different password for the Gnome-keyring than the login which
causes the keyring to prompt for a password.  I'm not sure what if any the delay
causes NetworkManager.  

I believe that an downstream update to gnome-keyring will allow the user to
change the password.  I can't wait.
