Smile how to install broadcom STA wireless driver WITHOUT wired connection?

So I'm trying to install the broadcom STA without having to have wired connection. Ideally, get the files on my usb, then transfer and install. Any suggestions? I am using Fedora15

Got to and get the kmod-wl RPM for your architecture and your installed kernel onto your usb drive, then as root, do:

rpm -Uvh </path-to-usb-drive/filename>

Once you get wireless connectivity you can add the rpm-fusion free and non-free repositories to /etc/yum.repos.d so that the drivers update when you update the kernel in the future.
