This worked for me:

My lspci command returns:

...
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR8151 v2.0 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0)
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43227 802.11b/g/n

So, install the RPM Fusion broadcom-wl driver

su
yum install akmod-wl

Reboot graciously.
