Hi,

I get the exact same problem. Wireless doesn't work, wired connexion works.
I upgraded my fedora yesterday, and NetworkManager was updated. I
suspected that the new kernel might be the reason but reverting to an
older kernel doesn't do anything.

I'm using the ath9k driver (AR9285) but I don't think that is the reason.

I tried looking at the logs, but couldn't find anything useful in them.
Do you know what I should look for.


Here is what I find in /var/log/messages when I try to connect:
