Hello Tom,

I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.

Chris, in my last yum update about a week ago, I all of a sudden have internet 
wireless access, so I think this bug is dead.

Good to hear Tom. Thanks for filing anyway and please re-open if the problem
comes back. Closing then...
