With Kernel 2.6.31.6-162.fc12.i686 the wireless is completely disabled. This was the latest kernel installed.

Backing down to kernel 2.6.31.6-145.fc12.i686 everything returns to normal. This was the immediately preceding kernel I had.

Any one confirm this? I looked for a BZ entry but I'm notoriously bad at finding things there....

Did you have a 3rd party driver installed, like kmod-wl or similar? If so did you update that?

Boot your old kernel and see what driver is in use. If it's not a Fedora driver you are on your own. At least people here are polite, LKML is less so on occasion. ;-)
