Hi Ivan Virgili!

I may not be able to get to this conversation further since my
internet is going away for a while (people move from time to time) but
I believe others would like to know:

I would appear from what you have written that you do not associate
with an access point.  Is that true?  Do you actually connect?

Which Fedora (5? 7? 8?)?  Which Kernel (uname -a)?

Which kernel module is talking to your GIGABYTE WMKG?  (see: man lsmod)

What is the output of ifconfig, iwconfig, iwlist (see: man iwlist),
iwspy, and iwevent (it is good to run this in a separate terminal as
you work with the other tools).

Do you see anything interesting in dmesg or /var/log/messages
concerning your wireless adapter?  You also might do an lspci -v -v -x

Good Hunting!
