I updated to a newer F17 kernel last night, and I'm now without a wireless card (unless I load the previous kernel). At the moment I'm running the kernel 3.3.7-1.fc17.i686, and the most recent one is 3.4.0-1.fc17.i686.
That being said, I found a great how-to at the following site (it pertains to my Dell Inspiron 1525):
The problem is, when I run the command modprobe wl, I get the following:
# modeprobe wl
FATAL: Module wl not found
I compared the two files /lib/modules/[f17 kernel]/modules.dep (as was suggested at the site below), and found that extra/wl/wl.ko: kernel/net/wireless/lib80211.ko existed in all the previous files until the current kernel. I added that to the file for the current kernel and nothing changed.
Since switching to an open source system, this has been my biggest challenge: getting too addicted to tinkering around with my OS when I should be studying for things like my midterm on Monday. That being said, any help would be really appreciated.
