    You have a Broadcom 4312 wireless. The Linux driver for it is the Broadcom wl driver. Since it is not an open source driver, it is not installed by default.

    You can install it by enabling the RPM Fusion repository, and install it with YUM.

    RPM Fusion - RPM Fusion
    RepoView: RPM Fusion (Fedora - nonfree - released) 10 (i386/)

    Hello Paul,

    So nice to hear from you again. Anyway, I think I'm not doing it correctly since I am not able to make my fedora wireless run yet. I was wondering if you can enlighten me on my mistake please? Thanks.

    HTML Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# yum install kmod-wl-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686
    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
    Setting up Install Process
    No package kmod-wl-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686 available.
    Nothing to do
    [root@localhost ~]# yum update broadcom-wl
    Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
    Setting up Update Process
    Error: No Package Matching broadcom-wl

    You first have to enable the RPM Fusion repository:

    Configuration - RPM Fusion

    Then verify the signing keys:

    keys - RPM Fusion

    Dear Paul,

    Hello! The first part I think I was able to do right.

    HTML Code:
    Command Line Setup using rpm
    
    To enable access to both the free and the nonfree repository use the following command:
    
        *
    
          Fedora 10 or 11:
    
          su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
    HTML Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

    The second part seems to be new to me.

    HTML Code:
    Verify
    
    If you have newly installed the rpmfusion-*-release.rpm repo packages, and wish to verify its keys, check the fingerprints below.
    
    Current Keys
    
    RPM Fusion free for Fedora 8, 9 and 10
    
    Download; key in pgp.mit.edu; fingerprint:
    
    pub   1024D/49C8885A 2008-07-12
          Key fingerprint = 870F EA14 0067 8204 7151  BA87 8550 99B2 49C8 885A
    uid                  RPM Fusion repository (Fedora - free) <rpmfusion-buildsys@lists.rpmfusion.org>
    sub   2048g/A2F04C4B 2008-07-12
    
    RPM Fusion nonfree for Fedora 8, 9 and 10
    
    Download; key in pgp.mit.edu; fingerprint:
    
    pub   1024D/B1981B68 2008-07-12

    sub   2048g/71458DC6 2008-07-12
    I downloaded all the "clikables" but it seems to bring me nowhere. How can I install the second part please? Thanks

    Actually, I'm not too sure about that myself. Go ahead and use YUM to install the driver. You may first have to update the YUM repository information.
    Code:
    yum makecache
    Then install the driver.
    Code:
    yum install broadcom-wl

    The wl driver is not open source. You have to enable the RPM Fusion non-free repository too.
    Code:
    su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
    This will enable both free and non-free repositories.

    Edit: I see that is what you already did. I think you should try the other method. Click on this link to the rpm file, and tell it to open with: Package Installer.

    http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm

    What do you get when you enter this commamd?
    Code:
    yum repolist
    You should get a list that includes these repositories.
    Code:
    rpmfusion-free                                       RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Free                                          enabled:    324
    rpmfusion-free-updates                               RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Free - Updates                                enabled:    968
    rpmfusion-nonfree                                    RPM Fusion for Fedora 10 - Nonfree                                       enabled:    142
