before you go any farther
fedora 16 is about to go " End Of Life"
and "should" have already done so

30 days after fedora 18 is officially released fedora 16 becomes dead
-- this should be on Jan. 08 2013 - in about one month

so using fedora 17 ( or ) next month installing fedora 18
is a good idea

Are you able to connect from windows? Are you sure that you haven't used up all of what your plan allows? Have you tried recharging it? Unless you did something to network manager, very little should go wrong with your internet settings. I use a BSNL modem myself and have had no problem, although I'm on fedora 17 not 16.
