I have F16 installed on a Acer Aspire S3. Wifi (Atheros AR9485) was working fine until Kernel 3.2.2 came in upgrades. Now, wireless is detected and Access Points listed, but it will never authenticate. If I reboot with Kernel 3.2.1 the wireless works again.

How can I fix it again?

Edit: latest update for Linux 3.2.3 does not fix this.

Edit: I just reported a bug for this:

Edit: It's working again with Kernel 3.2.5-3 and upper versions.

It is a bug, it is being worked on. Please use the 3.2.1 kernel until the problem is fixed.

I have used this website for a very long time. It's been a fantastic resource for how to install and configure various wireless cards including my problem broadcom cards.

Try deleting the access points in nm-connection-editor and setting them up again. See if that works. Also check /var/log/messages and ~/.xsession-errors for any errors.
