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 : Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01) Subsystem: Dell XPS 8300 [1028:0010] Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17 Memory at fbd00000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge ... ...Code:

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.
