Fedora 17 wireless not working on Dell 1545 Broadcom

I've just installed a clean install of Fedora 17 on my laptop. I can't seem to even see the wireless option in the network settings. I've updated all the softwares and followed some wireless update tutorials elsewhere but they all result in terminal saying everything is up to date.
I don't know what I'm missing.. Help, please?

Re: Fedora 17 wireless not working on Dell 1545 Broadcom

I have the same problem having upgraded from FC16 a few days ago. Wireless card no longer detected in my Dell Inspiron 1525. Have followed a few topics to fix without success. I have installed broadcom-wl and kmod-wl. Any hints on what to try next greatly appreciated. thanks
