Wireless Stopped Working

I had Fedora Core 6 installed on my Dell Inspiron 1150 Laptop, and after 4 days of researching, I was able to get wireless to work.

I recently erased everything from my harddrive, and reinstalled everything so that I could have Windows XP and Fedora Core 6 Dual boot.

Everything went well, except now I can't get my wireless internet to work on FC6 using the same instructions as I used last time (it was successful the first time i tried it).

Here is the link I used (The Wireless portion of the website..)

Those exact instructions and driver downloads worked fine, and now they dont work!

Here is my specific problem:

The 'wlan0' that was setup using the instructions from the website below, fails to search for access points when using the command 'iwlist wlan0 scan' in the terminal.

However, I am able to get eth1 to successfully search and find access points using the same command.

I can't get ethier wireless connection ('eth1' or 'wlan0') to work!

Please help!

Let's start from the basics. Post the output of lsmod and iwconfig and lets see where we are. Don't get too wrapped around wlan0 vs. eth1, they really are just names and it doesn't matter in the least which name gets used.
