Belkin F5D7050 USB wireless problem w/ FC10

I recently upgraded to FC10 and wanted to replace wired with wireless connection.

Bought the Belkin USB wireless stick (version 3002 "firmware"). I've installed the rt73 driver, but when device is active and I deactive the wired connection I have no access. I'm getting an address from DHCP. When eth0 is inactive I get the following with ifconfig:

% ifconfig
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr: Mask:
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
RX packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:12 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

RX bytes:800 (800.0 b) TX bytes:800 (800.0 b)

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1C:DF:1D:0D:F0

RX packets:44 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:2 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:14903 (14.5 KiB) TX bytes:472 (472.0 b)

wmaster0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-1C-DF-1D-0D-F0-C0-84-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

Unfortunately this has been a real pain to debug as I often find myself in a state in which I have to recover the wired line as it gets corrupted. Worse, I find myself doing "superstitious" behaviour since I'm a bit out of my element on this one.

Any pointers or things to consider, or should I just return the Belkin and get another wireless USB (and if so, which one - this is my second try).
