    Wireless stopped working- Fedora 12

    I installed F12 around the time it was released and it picked up my wireless card and worked like a charm.....Suddenly last week everything stopped working and I receive what appears to be a driver error when wlan0 tries to load.

    Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.
    Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
    invalid argument "if902c7885".


    lspci reveals

    Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4318] (rev 02)
    Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI Card [1028:0005]


    A quick google cam of with plenty of issues related to older versions of Fedora but nothing in F12..Any ideas?

    Did you install it using ndiswrapper? Sometimes a kernel upgrade using yum or something else cause it to break and you have to reinstall ndiswrapper all over again.

    I figured out what the issue was....Very simple..Somehow NM_CONTROLLED was set to 'no' in my ifcfg-wlan0 script......I'm not sure how it changed as I haven't touched the wireless config....Maybe when I updated NetworkManager via yum. Thanks
