I just removed kmod-wl and it worked, looks like they are incompatible.

Just comment out the appropriate line (blacklist b43) at:

[root@localhost ~]# cat /usr/lib/modprobe.d/broadcom-wl-blacklist.conf
# modules blacklisted for broadcom-wl
blacklist ssb
blacklist bcma
blacklist b43
blacklist brcmsmac
blacklist brcmfmac
blacklist b43-pci-bridge

uninstall kmod-wl is a little bit drastic.

What method have you used to set up wireless? If you used the b43-fwcutter method, you need to run the command at every boot.

Here's how to do it with systemd: How to run scripts on boot with systemd.
