Question Broadcom driver not detected after kernel update


i just updated my Fedora 14 from Kernel version to
Now the driver for the broadcom wireless ethernet adapter is not detected anymore
I installed the driver using
yum install broadcom-wl
modprobe wl
iwlist eth1 scan
The package is still installed but when i but when i use modprobe again the output is "module wl not found"
Anybody some ideas?
By the way, here is the hardware specification
jay@j4y-netb:~$ lspci | grep Ethernet
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5764M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)

Re: Broadcom driver not detected after kernel update

Study the list of all the installed relevant packages, the running kernel, and the loaded modules...
rpm -qa | grep -e kernel -e broadcom-wl -e kmod-wl | sort
uname -r
lsmod | sort
Maybe the answer and what to do will be obvious in all of that.
