Prism 2.5 Wavelan not activating in FC2

Okay, strangest problem... I just did a fresh install of FC2 and everything was working great. My wireless was working when I went to sleep- I downloaded a bunch of updates from yum. I rebooted in the morning and now it's no longer working!

I have a Hp Pavilion ze5300 and am running FC2 with all the latest updates.

Here's the output from iwconfig and ifconfig:
The wireless router is called "megadork" and is on channel 7.

[root@localhost root]# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.
