OK - Reverse the static IP logic:
Did the UPC techs set up the router for his laptop (for windows) or did
he use the 'Magic' UPC CD to set up his new router and home network(from
Windows)? DHCP may be turned off on the router and Windows may be set to
static IP assignment.
The acid test will be if Fedora connects to a public AP - this will tell
you that the problem is on the router.
Also - try to get an independant laptop in and see if that connects to
If this is not an IP issue then you are in the Bermuda Triangle :)
