#lspci

First rum this command as a root user

# rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm

Now update the system.



#yum -y update
#yum -y install broadcom-wl
#yum install kmod-wl-PAE

After this reboot your system.
Hope your wirelss working.

If you are still using Fedora 11 do yourself a favor and upgrade to a supported version of the OS before following the advices.
