Fedora 16 wireless help!


I've recently switched from Ubuntu 10 to Fedora 16 and I can't
get my wireless device to be detected in my laptop. I have a Dell Vostro 1510 that is partitioned with Windows 7 and Fedora.
I can connect with ethernet but wireless is much more convenient.

I ran a script to get all my wireless info:

Code:
#! /bin/bash
# This script will find the needed information for
# wireless troubleshooting.
# Name this file WirelessSetup
cd ~/
touch wireless_setup.txt
echo ============ lspci ============ >> ~/wireless_setup.txt

The output was a bit lengthy:

It looks you need to find the driver for the Broadcom 4312 chip. This should help get you pointed in the right direction.
