Aspire 5750 Wireless does not work

I have a Aspire 5750 the i3 version all original except that I have installed 2 extra GB of RAM.

The problem is, I installed CentOS 6 on in and it does not connect to WLAN, LAN does work.
I think it uses the Broadcom BCM57785, but I am not sure.
It does however work on Windows 7 (have it in Boot Menu)
Can someone check if that is the correct Wireless Adapter and if that is, can someone help me out with the issue.

By the way, I did not know if I should post this in Hardware, Software or Laptop category.

# lspci -v | grep -i net
# lsmod
# ifconfig -a
