wireless network access in fedora 17

My system specs are
Linux CSG.localdomain 3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon May 7 17:29:34 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)
The first time I inserted my 'netgear N150 USB wifi adapter'.
I get icon in top right bar that allows me to select the wireless network & all goes well .
but if i turn wireless off by clicking on that icon & then turn it 'on' , the wifi networks do not reappear.
Please see attached smesg , lspci logs

I also found out that 'nm-connection-editor' seems to be the only way to configure static IP.

the problem is that lspci doesn't tell us anything about your USB-adapter.

You should take a look at the of lsusb. I daubt that lsusb will help here. Do you know which tool/program you're using in order to connect to your wireless network? (I mean, which program does the icon belong to?)
