Default route not set on bootup

I posted this problem a couple of weeks ago. I did not get a solution, so I'm trying again.

I installed Fedora 10 on my E machines laptop. Got the Broadcom wireless network working. For the first time, I am letting Network Manager manage the network. In Network Manager, I disabled the wired network and enabled the wireless network.

The problem: on bootup, the default route is not set. I confirm this with the 'netstat -nr' command.

Here's the ground I've covered.
- The is not the bug where Network Manager sets the Netmask to the gateway IP address. I noticed that and corrected it during the initial installation. I can't say the issue isn't related, but I caught that error. - I have the "GATEWAY=" directive set in both the /etc/sysconfig/network file and the ifcfg-wlan0 file. - If I reset the interface ('ifdown wlan0', 'ifup wlan0') or reset the network ('service network restart'), the default route gets set.

Anyone have any ideas on what might be wrong?
