    You want to use the 'wl' driver. To get it, you first need to enable the RPM Fusion repository.
    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'
    Then install the driver components:
    Code:
    su -c 'yum install broadcom-wl kmod-wl'

    Though I ran into something weird:



    I am connected to it right now..does this mean its not connected at N?

    ***Note the icon to the far right thats not the ethernet network icon is the sound icon.

    The two monitors icon is NetworkManager. Click on that to show available networks. Then click on one of the available networks. If there is encryption, it will ask for the password.

    Did all that, and thats what the icon stays as after connecting. It connected. But unlike when I tether from my phone I don't get the WiFi icon nor what network I am actually connected too.




    I am actually connected to Fallout.

    My Fedora 12 system doesn't have this problem. Your NetworkManager isn't showing that you are connected at all. It should list the network that you are connected to.

    What is the output of this command:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Also, right-click on that icon and make sure that the "Enable Wireless" box is checked.

              Retry min limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off

    Try configuring it in tne "Network" gui. If XFCE doesn't have that, try starting it with this command. (as root)
    Code:
    system-config-network
    If the device isn't showing on the first tab, go to the hardware tab and click the "New" icon. In the setting for this device, select to control it using NetworkManager

    I am at a loss here.....

    I see two options in the command:

    Device Configuration
    DNS Configuration

    Than I hit arrow down to select Device Configuration, next screen brings me to:

    eht0 (eth0) - Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express
    <New Device>


    I hit <New Device> (Cause wirelss is suppose to be eth1 typically)

    I get three choices:

    Ethernet
    Modem
    ISDN

    I hit Ethernet than I really don;t know what to fill out for the information.

    Hi guys!

    Just wanted to share FWIW.

    Just installed my Fedora 12 for the first time and after solving grub issue, I was able to make my wireless work following the above. Also blaclisted b43.

    Thanks LF!

    EDIT: i wanted to post this in the Coffee Lounge but I clicked ahead before thinking. So if any of the mods think this should be transfered, please feel free , thanks!
