Re: F10 not connecting to wireless

I'm finally installing Fedora 10 x86_64 to replace a rather creaky
Fedora 6, and I can't connect to my wireless router. I was actually
looking forward to this working properly, as I had tried the Fedora 9
x86_64 live cd previously and it Just Worked (TM).  But in F10, both
x86_64 and i686, NetworkManager fails to get an IP.  Watching with
iwconfig while it's trying to connect I can see that the access point
is associating okay, but then it gives up trying to get a DHCP lease.
I've attached stderr from NM running in no-daemon mode under both F9
and F10 64 bit.

Unfortunately I had a go at disabling NM and using the old
system-config-network approach too and this no longer works either.
Any suggestions?

NIC is a Ralink rt2500.

If you are using excryption (WEP or WPA) I have a thought for you. Configure the NIC to sart at boot, not use NM, and after you come up log in and do a
  "service network reload"
and see if it comes up. FC9 worked for me uptil a NM "upgrade" after which it stopped working. After complaining about it to no avail, and debugging it to no solution, I concluded that NM tried to do the attach before wpa_supplicant was running, and the crypto failed. I could be all wet on that but this line
  (sleep 30; service network reload) &
in rc.local fixed my problem. When there's a live CD I will try it with FC11 on that machine, or install to a flash drive.
