Does sudo rfkill list produce anything? Also check for a hardware switch (All my lenovos have one), especially if it says hard blocked on anything in rfkill. You may need to install rfkill - sudo yum install rfkill

What does lspci -v produce for your wireless card and driver, and does 'Use as Hotspot' and 'Connect to Hidden Wireless Network' work? And does iwconfig find anything like this?

The iwconfig seems to clears up the hardware switch - but it looks like you have a driver problem. My Lenovo G570 also use the BCM4313 - and it displays bcma-pci-bridge as the driver. I am also using Fedora 19, so this should hopefully be easy to clear up - even though the drivers don't always work the same in different setups...
