It was an upgrade from FC6.
It worked for a while after the upgrade. I was using eth1 for the wireless
card. When I tried to use the iwl3945 drivers, I had some problems staying
connected to the wrt54g router. It would work, then drop, so I made the change
to have the interface be wlan0 hoping that if I removed any non standard setup
that it would help. It didn't. When I tried to go back to ipw3945, that is
when I had the problems connecting to an access point with wpa-personal.
Long answer to whether it was a fresh install or upgrade.
