Seems that the kernel/NetworkManager no longer
can load the rt2870sta module. I tried:

# lsmod | grep ra

# modprobe rt2870
FATAL: Module rt2870 not found.

# yum reinstall rt2870 kmod-rt2870
(then checked again, nothing has changed)

I checked everything else, the network-scripts and so on
and the configurations seems intact...

So how can I get my connection back
OK. I assume you are using rpmfusion.

So, what do you get when you type

rpm -q rt2870 kmod-rt2870

also, what is the output of

iwconfig wlan0
# rpm -q rt2870 kmod-rt2870

# iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 No such device
# iwconfig ra0
ra0 No such device

Notice my previous post, seems that the .ko module needs
to be compatible with the latest version, as the one I am using
is for a previous kernel version - I think this is the culprit.

I think I will need to wait for RMPFusion to generate a new
package or there may me the option to use akmod, dunno.

Where in blazes did you get and boot kernel-2.4 FOR F13????

Your system or yum repo files must be so totally hozed!!!

Huh? Are you reading this post correctly? This is RMPFusion's
way of managing packages and there is a thread about it.

My latest kernel is:

Anyway - the problem is SOLVED!

I used akmod-rt2870 and it auto-compiles to the latest kernel,
and requires a reboot.

My wireless connection is baaaaaaaack! :P
