Kernel 2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64 (fedora 14)
Card rt2860 (see lspci.txt)
Modules from standard fedora installation (I assume these are rt2x00, though I don't know how to confirm) -
specifically not rmpfusion ralink port

The card works perfectly OK if I start it from NetworkManager; however I need it to come up at boot time and be independent of user logins.

I can disable NetworkManager and start it at runtime with my script wifi.sh (attached as wifi.sh.txt), and it starts up perfectly OK. However if I put a call to wifi.sh in /etc/rc.d/rc.local, it fails (with full diagnostics, I get the results below). This looks a bit like the discussion in [url36l17jzq]http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/wiki/index.php/Meetings[/url36l17jzq].

Configuring the network in system-config-network also fails, (I can't check the message right now as it will screw up the connection I'm writing this over - will happily supply later if relevant).

Any hints on how to get this working at boot time, or pointers to where I can find more info, would be greatly appreciated.

If I configure the card with system-config-network (fedora gui), it fails to start with

[codebqjd370t]Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.

Determining IP information for wlan0... failed; no link present. Check cable?[/codebqjd370t]

Not sure where to go from here....
