NetworkManager shutting down wireless

FC3 and latest updates
during booting , eth1, wireless is started and NetworkManager damon is
shutting it down.
This happens even if eth0, ethernet, is shut off before rebooting and eth1 starts
but is shutoff .
eth0 is not affected with shutoff, if NetworkManager damon is disabled both eth0,eth1 will
start and stay on.

Hi Jim,

In this situation I'd be tempted to bug it via bugzilla and then use normal iwconfig to make a connection until you get a reply from the Fedora Project. You could also try grabbing the latest CVS version from rawhide ftps??? Network Manager was causing me grief too. I'm waiting for FC4 before trying again.
