Fedora, detects wireless networks but cannot connect

Basically, I just installed Fedora in my desktop (use it on my laptop), and have a big problem, which is that Fedora (13), detects my wireless card (Edimax nMAX EW-7728IN), but when I try to connect to my wireless networks (WEP & WPA) it hangs and asks again for the password. I know the problem isn't from my routers, since I'm right now connected via Fedora 13 in my laptop. Any help would be appreciated.

It is sometimes a NetworkManager issue.

For a way to check that see http://home.roadrunner.com/~computer.../wireless.html

Re: Fedora, detects wireless networks but cannot connect

I don't know if this helps you, but personally in my desktop I have a USB wireless (TP-Link model something or other, I cant remember) stick which does this to me sometimes.

All I ever have to do is pull it out and plug it back in and it works perfectly though.

Thanks, in my case, since the wireless card is PCI, I will have to turn off the PC.
