    Your card.

    The 4328 doesn't work with the native linux b43 driver. You need the broadcom-wl driver.

    Instructions here:
    Broadcom Linux STA Driver — Fedora Unity Project

    As the link that reed9 gave you says, the Broadcom-wl driver can be installed using the RPM Fusion repository. But it doesn't tell you how to enable the repository. Here is a link to the RPM Fusion web site, where you can find instructions to enable this repository.

    RPM Fusion - RPM Fusion

    Sorry for the long reply, work has been killing me. Anyways, I switched back to Fedora 10 since I felt 11 still wasn't complete enough. Maybe once 12 launches, I'll give 11 another try.

    I got my desktops wireless to work with the RPM fusion and the instructions provided by reed9. Fedora 11 would install the broadcom-wl but modprobe would fail, I don't remember the exact error. Thanks again to reed9 and waterhead for the help.
