Which kernel version are you running?
i've downloaded the source via yum and added the missing device id to the iwlagn driver. after replacing the original driver with the fixed one i'm able to get wireless working.
Well, good to hear. FWIW, that ID is already in the 2.6.29-based kernels that I expect will be available shortly (and are already available in Koji).
ok. this is good news. hopefully no new update for the 2.6.27 series arrives earlier. i wouldn't want to exercise anymore of that module compile/install :)
in anticipation of f11 i've updated to kernel 220.127.116.11-126.fc11.x86_64 from rawhide and can confirm that the problem has been fixed there. you may close the bug.
