WLAN not recognised by F12 in boot

I have just tried to upgrade my Toshiba Laptop (Satelite X205-S9800) from Fedora 10, which was working correctly, to Fedora 12. During the first boot Fedora 12 does not recognise my Wireless LAN Card and stops (Freezes) in that part of the first boot sequence. I have tried switching the LAN OFF in the Bios and also switching it off(There is an On/Off switch on the Wirless LAN card. Neither of those actions fixed the problem.

Any help in resolving this issue will be much appreciated.

Does it eventually finish the boot sequence or does it hang forever?

More info is needed.

What is the model and make of said WLAN card?

What is the exact error messages displayed?

What does "lspci" show?

I have resolved this problem, on my Toshiba Laptop by reloading Fedora 12 with the WLAN switch off and the LAN disabled.
