Welcome to the club.  I've had the same problem with the same wifi
card since upgrading to FC5.  So far no one has had any suggestions.
One thing that I've noticed is that two different modules are claiming
ownership of this card (orinoco_cs and hostap_cs).  In the past only
orinoco_cs owned this card.  I've tried blacklisting modules, and that
didn't help.

One odd thing that does help is leaving the card ejected when booting
up, and if I insert it after the OS has fully booted, then it works
fine.

I have two of these cards that are version 3, and one would not work until I started using NetworkManager.  It is displayed as wifi01/wlan01 card.  My other computer picked it as eth1 and it is working with out NetworkManager.  Both computers were clean installs on my test systems.  I will let you know if I find out any more on this card.  Both are working for me currently, and both list them self as The Linksys Group, Inc. Instant Wireless Netowrk PC Card ISL37300P RevA
