Wireless FC17

Hi everyone. I am running fc17 and everything was fine until earlier tonight when all of a sudden my router restarted and after it booted up I couldn't connect using wifi. I tried my neighbor's network and still not working. Tried my other laptop and all went well. After a lot of fiddling about I decided to report a bug and what do you know-there is one already:

and despite my efforts using that information nothing works. I decided to update kernel to 3.6.3 but then it got even worse-wireless is hard disabled. My bios does not give me any options regarding enabling it. Updating, tring older kernels-nothing works.... So any suggestions might be useful
