WiFi and Broadcom


Are there any packages to simply install my Broadcom - bcm43xx drivers. This is unreal, way to difficult to get wifi working. There has to be something out there easier or some instruction STEP BY STEP for noobs like me.... Thanks guys.

This is not intended as a criticism or an insult, but I think you really need to reconsider using Linux as your OS. The fact is that I have pointed you to step by step instructions. But you seem to be having a great deal of difficulty accepting that Linux is not a point and click OS and that, particularly with wireless, you need to do a fair bit of learning. That is going to mean learning how to type commands into a console and how Linux organizes its files. At very least you should reconsider your choice of Fedora. A distro more suited to new users, like Ubuntu, might be better. However, even with Ubuntu, you're going to need to use the console from time to time.
