It is a text file with some of my computer configs.
Description of problem:I installed a new Linksys wireless card. It has a Raylink chipset rt2500. It worked out of the box with a fresh install of Fedora 9. After a yum update the wireless failed to work. Acutally the card works I can see the network but it will not join my wireless network. It fails to authenticate.
When I reboot to the old kernel the wireless works fine. There is something with the new kernel that will not let it authenticate. If that makes any sense. I have attached some specs. I will give you what ever you need to figure this out.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
uname -r original kernel:2.6.25-14.fc9.i686 <-- wireless works
uname -r new kernel : 126.96.36.199-108.fc9.i686 <-- wireless doesn't work
How reproducible:If I boot to the new kernel joining my wireless network it hangs for a while then it fails and a pop up shows some weird passphrase in the wpa window.
If I boot to the old kernel wireless works and authenticates fine
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log into new default kernel
Actual results: No authentication on my wireless
Expected results:Should just find my wireless ssid and log in with no issues.
Additional info:Please let me know if you need any more information or if something is not clear.
Best thing to do here is likely to try a supplicant config with the new kernel. I can try to help lead you through that if you like. Do you use IRC at all?
Actually rt2500 has been busted for a while. There is an upstream patch that is supposed to fix it, but it hasn't made its way into fedora kernels yet.

I do IRC That is how I have made it here. Tell me where you want to go and I will meet you there. I am using a supplicant config did you see the attachment? Also this worked before the upgrade. If you can suggest a config change I am all ears.
John, it worked fine till I updated. Are you saying that I am out of luck or I need to run the original kernel with no updates? What do you suppose the difference is?

Do you have any idea of when that will appear and do you have a suggestion on a new card that works with the latest fedora kernel?
