I installed Fedora 17 on my laptop (Samsung Series 5), and everything is OK except the wireless. I've tried to activate it but I couldn't. On the top right corner, "unavailable" is next to the wireless icon.

I can't find BCM43xx in the lspci report and in forums they suppose that 'BCM43xx' does exist in the report of lspci.

The problem is that in the Internet we don't consider the case when we don't find "BCM43xx" in the "lspci" report. I don't quite understand this line, can you make it a bit clearer? – Kruug Jan 9 '13 at 21:39
Me neither, please edit your post and fix it if I got that wrong. Thanks. – slhck Jan 9 '13 at 21:40
Check that you didn't turn off wireless (many laptops have a physical switch, or some magic Fn-cokebottle key to do so). – vonbrand Feb 25 '13 at 2:16
