Lost WiFi after kernel 3.5.1 update
 
This morning I installed a kernel update (3.4.1-1.fc17 x86_64) and lost my WiFi connection, I use the broadcom-wl (5.100.82.112-2 package) from rpmsfusion for my BCM4312 WiFi device.

Have you reinstalled the broadcom-wl package? I'd imagine there's a module missing.

I have a 4312 also, and just use ssb & b43 (Kernel modules). It's ok.

Yes I just found out that the kmod-wl (wl kernel module is not yet available for the new kernel. I did not even know that I used a kernel module for this WIFI card...

This is not uncommon - you can always just boot the old kernel until the module for the new kernel ships.
