    Question Working wifi has now stopped connecting

    I got fed up with ubuntu - reasons are many. So, yesterday, I installed Fedora 17. Everything was working out of the box. Wifi was working too. After a couple of installations (the usual stuff - codecs, editors etc) though, I cannot connect to the wireless network that I was working on just a few minutes ago. I have checked in win7 and that network works fine. The signal srrength is a bit weak though. But if it was connecting before - and if its connecting on windows - then it should connect on fedora too. Here's some info:
    $ lspci -v -nn -k
    12:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)

    	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17

    	Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge
    $ iwconfig

    lo        no wireless extensions.
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any

              Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Power Management:off
    am running Fedora 17 64 bit.
    Also, please keep it in cosideration that I a fairly new to linux. So, if you need the output of any other command - please just let me know. Thanks.
