Can't connect to internet F11 through wireless or ethernet


I'm a pretty new Fedora user, I just upgraded to F11. When I first got F10, I could connect to ethernet, but not wireless. I finally was able to connect to wireless by using Autoten and getting the proper Broadcom drivers I needed from there. Now that I upgraded I can't connect through ethernet or wireless, and I'm not sure where to start to try to fix it.

I have a compaq hp R4000 64 bit processor and a broadcom network adapter.

thanks in advance for any help or ideas

You probably need to install the proper firmware for your wireless card..

could you post the two lines for your Ethernet and Wireless card here from the output of the command lspci ?
