Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless Issue - No Wired Connection

So basically, complete linux noob here, dual-booted fedora 13 with windows 7, and fedora can't seem to detect either my wired or wireless, however i don't really care about the wired. After spending a few hours browsing forums and tutorials and the like, seems as if it is a driver issue, as in there is none. I have managed to find the files :
HTML Code:
broadcom-wl-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.noarch.rpm
kmod-wl-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm
kmod-wl-2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm
I brought them over using a usb drive, but they will not install citing failed dependecies, saying they need each other. Here are the errors, excuse any mistake i am cross-typing it as this is another computer:
HTML Code:
warning kmod-wl-2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm: Header
V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 2425b284: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
          wl-kmod-common >= 5.60.48.36 is needed by kmod-wl-2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.5.x86_64
So i try kmod-wl-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm
and it gives
HTML Code:
]warningkmod-wl-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm: Header
V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 2425b284: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
          kmod-wl-2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64 >= 5.60.48.36-1.fc13 is needed by kmod-wl-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.5.x86_64
I really have no idea.

Here is is the output of uname -r
HTML Code:
2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64
and lspci
HTML Code:
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 0 1)
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless Issue - No Wired Connection

Install the three files all at once in the same rpm command. For example, change directories in the terminal to the folder where the three files are located. Then...
Code:
su
rpm -ivh *.rpm
When that completes successfully, reboot and check the NetworkManager panel applet icon for available networks (left-click the icon).

Re: Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless Issue - No Wired Connection

Now you need to install the RPM Fusion repos before you update the kernel. Otherwise, the new kernel will not have wireless. Go here for the steps...

Re: Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless Issue - No Wired Connection

So suppose i did update before reading your reply, and now the wireless is broken again (although the update did fix the wired). What should i do?.

Install the RPM Fusion repos now. Then do the update again. You can either reboot into the old kernel and do the update with the wireless connection, or you can reboot into the new kernel and do the update using the now working wired connection. Either way should work. Then reboot again into the new kernel and try the wireless connection.
