Can you run lspci from terminal and paste the results here? This will tell us which version of Broadcom chip you have.

The bm4311 and earlier chip sets did not have good native drivers. The easiest way for me was to install 'ndiswrapper'. You should be able to install through your repository and then use the windows driver. I found this thread that might help you. If you have more questions, post and I will try and help.

I did mine on Suse 11.0 but I understand they have fixed thr b43-fwcutter. Here is a page with the latest packages and you have to know which type Fedora 11 you are using. The 'how to' instructions is with the package. I would recommend trying this first. I will give you a link to the thread I used to install the broadcom on my set. The solution is post is almost at the bottom of the page.

better way

i find a better way , i did that before but because i was using Suse for long time so this solution did not work with SUSE , it's only for Fedora 11, and 10 etc etc etc

step 1 :
change to root
# su -

step 2 :
install autoten
# rpm -Uvh http://dnmouse.org/autoten-4-1.fc11.noarch.rpm

step 3 :
import signing key
# rpm --import http://dnmouse.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-dnmouse

for more information go to http://dnmouse.org

PS : uninstall ndiswrapper if you already installed it
