The recent NetworkManager upgrades have totally solved my disconnect problems, I can not connect under any circumstances. Is there any better way to back out this evil other than a total reinstall and upgrade to about two weeks ago?

I am not asking how to do anything else, please don't waste your time and mine telling me about bug reports and debugging, this machine MUST be working ASAP and I'm looking for the fastest path back, not the path forward.
I suppose if you downloaded the older version that you preferred, you
could install with '--oldpackage' option using rpm command and then
configure fedora-updates to ignore NetworkManager*

Final "solution" was to kill NM completely and hand configure the NIC, whereupon it works fine. The config has an essid and key specified, can't set the channel in NM in managed mode, doesn't find the AP if the channel isn't set.

NOTE: this has been working since early FC9, the new NM update in the last few days broke it. Since I have a way around it I'm functional.
