After using Ubuntu (and others distros but mainly Ubuntu) for a few years, I decided to give Fedora a try. I downloaded Fedora and installed it from USB (lots of trouble to get this working starting on with a Windows machine in Portuguese!)
I was a little bit disappointed when after a fresh install Fedora couldn't connect to wireless networks. lspci told me I was using a "Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)" and after a while (with a wired network) I got it working by following some tutorials found online.
What I did (broadcom-wl should be used in my case):
yum -y install yum-fastestmirror
yum -y update
yum localinstall --nogpgcheck .../rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm .../rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
yum install kmod-wl
After a reboot everything was working fine
until...it was not.
The internet was slow and soon I got disconnected, from this time on I could not connect to WiFi, once I tried to access my wireless network my password was asked again and again with no sucess connecting.
I found it even spookier that sometimes it would connect,just to fail miserably soon after ...
After what I heard about fedora, I really wasn't expecting this kind of problems, thought it would be ready to work out of the box. *sigh*
$ uname -r
Using an EEE PC 1215B
After a few reboots I noticed I can connect to my wireless network everytime I booted but once it failed, I could no longer connect again.
Thanks in advance guys
