Description of problem:
I updated from kernel 184.108.40.206-137.fc8 to kernel 220.127.116.11-13.fc8
The new kernels seem to be solving the problem I filed on bugzilla:
The link led flashes during scanning and, I presume, it would probably flash
Unfortunately the device does not manage to detect any wireless networks (even
if wireless router is less than 50cm from it).

I can confirm again that if I start my computer selecting kernel
188.8.131.52-137.fc8, then the wireless works, but I have the usual problem with
the link led not flashing.
kernel - 184.108.40.206-18.fc8.i686 and still no luck.
The card is a Gigabyte GN-WMKG
I have noticed that sometimes, with the new kernels, it does start.
I get the following errors:
Mar 5 18:30:35 localhost kernel: rt2x00pci -> rt2x00pci_alloc_reg: Error -
Failed to allocate registers.

I do not have such a problem with kernel 220.127.116.11-137.fc8
Sorry I meant "it is not loaded"
