wlan0 not showing up in iwconfig

Hello, I have used ndiswrapper andthe drivers for DWL-g520+(the ones from the cd) and it has worked fine, then i reinstalled fedora (installed everything on the cd) and after a while i got my net working again, i started downloading all of the updates. The next morning i woke up and saw that everything was downloaded (with up2date) and clicked forward, up2date stopped responding and my internet wasn't working, now when i do everything again iwconfig wont show wlan0. I used one of the tools to configure the cards and thinking maybe it did something, so now i have two questions.
the firstone is: What files may it have affected and how can i put all back to how it was.
the second is: Can it be the drivers? I'm not sure but i think i had a newer version before i reinstalled and now i cant find it anywhere (I really dint like the dlink download sites coz all of them seem to have different downloads.)

Wtf? now i noticed something had changed my grub.conf so i was booting wrong kernel, everything is working.
