I am having the same issue.
Switching back to kernel-3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64 works, but using kernel-3.4.0-1.fc17.x86_64 or kernel-3.4.2-4.fc17.x86_64 fails.

kernel-PAE-3.4.3-1.fc17.i686 - still same problem.
And after booting of kernel-3.4, my network card is completelly broken. Rebooting my system and starting PXE boot fails too. After boot of kernel-3.3.7 my PXE booting works again. Something is sent to my network card, which makes it non funtional. :-(
kernel-3.4.4-3.fc17.i686.PAE, my network works again. Thanks and closing.
