By default, Fedora will not detect your Wireless

if you have wired internet access on your MacBook Pro try opening the Terminal and using this:

su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'

sudo yum update

sudo yum install broadcom-wl

it should install the broadcom driver

edit: you can also download the broadcom rpm from here:

for 32bit Fedora

for 64bit Fedora
