Well I DON'T have it enabled and:  ifconfig wlan0

wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1B:77:43:09:78
           inet addr:192.168.171.160  Bcast:192.168.175.255  
Mask:255.255.248.0
           inet6 addr: fe80::21b:77ff:fe43:978/64 Scope:Link

So I am getting a Link Local IPv6 addr and that is what is causing the 
problem.

Neither /etc/sysconfig/network or 
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 have any mention of IPv6.
