i recently installed fedora 16. my previous os was ubuntu 11.10. my wifi used to work in it. My wifi card is Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01). i installed brodcom kmod wl driver. and i used modprobe wl. now wireless is shown in network manager. but i am not able to switch it on. it is always in off state. none of the networks are been detected. can you please help me to find a solution for this as soon as possible.
