Wireless Not Working on F8

I've just carried out a complete new installation of F8 on a system
which has been running various versions of Fedora for the last two or
three years.

The system has a wireless PCI card which it uses as its only
connection to my home network (and, hence, the internet). This device
is recognised as "Intersil Corporation Prism 2.5 Wavelan chipset". It
has worked just fine under all previous versions of Fedora but since
the upgrade to F8 the wireless networking doesn't seem to work.

I'm using Network Manager (as I did with FC6 and F7) and my wireless
network is seen, but when I try to connect to it, the icon twirls
round for a while before failing.

One thing I've noticed is that I seem to have three network interfaces
eth0, eth1 and wifi0. eth0 is the (unused) ethernet port and the other
two both seem to be the wireless card. I don't think I had that on F7.

Since switching to using Network Manager a year or so ago, I seem to
have forgotten everything I knew about debugging network problems on
Linux. So any suggestions as to where to start would be most

I've attached the output from iwconfig and ifconfig as well as lsmod.
I've also attached the /var/log/messages output which is created when
I try to connect to the network.
