I also have wireless problems under F12.  In my case the problem has to do
with network strength.  I have a laptop that dual boots Windows 7 and F12.
Under Windows 7 I can see and connect to more wireless networks than I can
under F12.  In all cases that I have tried if the signal is low or poor F12
will never succeed in connecting, but W7 will.  I have tried both the
internal wireless (Intel 3945) and an external Linksys USB adapter.  Even if
the signal is good F12 will not report available wireless connections.

I normally run F12 so if there is anything I can tweek on F12 to improve
accessibility I would like to know.

FWIW, just one more data point: when I ran F10 on my eeepc 901 (ralink
wireless) it showed many more wireless APs in my neighborhood than it
now does on F12. I still get good signal strength on my own AP, but it
seems odd that it now tends to show 1/2 to 2/3 of the number it used
to show. (I now see six or eight, including mine, I used to see 10-14
routinely). I suppose some of them may have gone off the air....

I have some 'g' USB devices I have been using on several machines with FC11, FC12 will not use them. I was not installing any magic drivers for them, they used to work.
