Do you have a second OS in your computer? It might be able to enable it.
For apparently no reason the wifi in my netbook (Atheros, BTW), "drops dead" after several hibernation procedures, and the only way (easiest at least) of getting it back is by rebooting the machine, entering the other OS (Linpus Linux, which happens to have full grasp of the hardware), enabling it there, and then getting back to Fedora. Perhaps someone can give an explanation to this apparently "hard-wired" hardware.
