/var/log/messages has lots of messages, but not sure what would be useful post here.
Neal, sounds like the right place is attaching to David W's bugzilla bug:
---
Finally, give us feedback in bugzilla so we can know if/when we should enable the driver by default again: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=186329

Please leave feedback even if it's working -- if the only people we
hear from are those who can't get it to work, then we're _never_
going to enable it by default.  :)

If you can't get it to work, try bringing it up by hand using
'ifconfig' and 'iwconfig' commands, and show/attach the kernel
output ('dmesg') from when you do so. Also try adjusting the rate
(iwconfig eth1 rate 2M) and setting the SSID again. We already
default to 11M, but that might not be slow enough in some
situations -- we don't automatically fall back when the link is
poor, so you have to set the speed manually.

Did you try the rate command ?
Perhaps a cut down log could be obtained by in one terminal:
# tail -f /var/log/messages
and in another, do the commands David suggested ?

or dmesg -c (view and clear), then do commands, then dmesg.

DaveT.
