[QUOTE=Rian79;4437768]I installed this by fluke originally - but since reinstall of Fedora 15 I have not been able to get my wireless working again

JEO from Fedoraforums gave me the following fix:

"You have the bcma module loaded. You should blacklist it as it will cause problems for the broadcom wl module."

su -
echo "blacklist bcma" > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcma.conf
