OK - that looks as though mine is ok, then.

~# chkconfig --list network

As does that.

Looks like you're using the madwifi driver. I haven't used it on my AA1 in
Fedora as the ath5k driver in the newer kernels have been working for me.
Nothing atheros-related is blacklisted in /etc/modprobe.d;
/etc.modprobe.conf is empty.

I've removed ndiswrapper and madwifi, leaving only the kernel driver. The blacklists for ath5k and ath5k-pci have disappeared. I've restarted NetworkManager, but still no joy.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts# cat ifcfg-wlan0
# Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter

Those lines match, too.

/etc/sysconfig# cat network

I have those plus


Nothing particularly interesting that I can see in sysconfig, but I've
included it just in case.

I have not seen your original post, about what your having problems with.
But !! Fedora 10 had problems on original install with DNS, but the problem was resolved on updates, did you get the latest updates ?
