Broadcom Wireless and Kernel issue
I'm having a problem with Fedora 14 with a Broadcom wireless and kernel updates. I am running kernel 184.108.40.206-48.fc14.x86_64. Wireless works fine, it automatically connects to my hidden wireless network. When I click on the network icon, I get a choice of Wired networks and Wireless networks.
However, when I upgrade to newer kernels using software update, I lose the wireless card. Fedora no longer even sees it. If I click on the network icon, I get only Wired Network.
Anybody know what's going on, or how to fix it? I used the script at this link in this forum (linuxforums)/forum/wireless-internet/137532-wireless-setup-start-here.html

I'd like to get this fixed, but I don't know how. Can anyone help?

I'm just going by your description and I haven't even looked at your output yet. I think the problem, more than likely, is that your card is using extra software called Firmware and until Fedora updates that too, you probably need to stick with the previous kernel.
Sometimes it takes several days for this to happen, sometimes it happens at the same time as kernel updates.
