Hello.

I have problem on my laptop Acer Aspire 5560g with this specifications: AMD Fusion A4-3300M Dual Core, (1.9GHz, Turbo Mod 2.5GHz, 2MB L2 Cache), 4096MB DDR3 1066MHz, 500GB SATA 5400rpm, A MD Radeon™ HD 6470M 1GB GDDR3

I installed Fedora 16 and there is no wireless and bluetooth adapter.

Any idea how to install them?

For bluetooth, please install the bluez-hid2hci package. It isn't in the default set of packages for F16.

yum -y install bluez-hid2hci

For broadcom wireless adapters, set up rpmfusion as given here and run

yum install kmod-wl

Okay, do this before you do anything else

# su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'

What's the brand/model of your wireless card/adapter ? was it a fresh install or did you upgrade from previous version?

# su -c 'yum -y install broadcom-wl'

That should get your wireless card up and running. Don't know about the bluetooth, though.
