    Exclamation no wifi in fedora 16

    Just did a fresh install of Fedora 16 on a HP Mini 5101, and it does not list wifi or wireless anywhere in the connections icon in the panel. Gnome 3 btw. I do have it connected to ethernet right now and that works nust fine. HELP!!!!
    I'm really looking forward to Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail! Are you?

    Hi,

    Since you didn't include specific info about what wireless card you are in possession of I did a google search and determined that you must have some sort of Broadcom card. Subsequent google searches led me to this Fedora Forum How To. Perhaps this might help.

    Ok, lspci says I have a BCM43224, and that chart tells me I need the driver broadcom-wl. Correct?

    That is how I read it as well. Good luck.
