After installing F10, when I power up my laptop, the default route

I had this problem as a symptom of the broken network configuration

I have a "GATEWAY=" statement in both
the ifcfg-wlan0 file and the /etc/sysconfig/network file.
Check the NETMASK statement in those files.

The NETMASK in the ifcfg-wlan0 file is good. I noticed and fixed that problem during the installation. There is no NETMASK statement in the /etc/sysconfig/network file. Any other ideas?
netmask should not be in /etc/sysconfig/network

you can however put GATEWAY= there

Just out of curiousity, are you sure that the gateway address isn't
registered on startup?

route -n # doesn't show the default gateway address at startup?
if so, does running the commands...

ifdown wlan0
ifup wlan0

make the gateway address appear in 'route -n' after running those

Interesting. The default route does appear after an ifdown - ifup. I've been using 'netstat -nr' to determine its existence. So that begs the question of why it is not set at boot time. Any thoughts?
