Ok, I guess it's just an isolated case on one F11 x86_64 laptop I have. It would happen about 50% of boots, the machine would lock up at gdm login or shortly after with the caps-lock/num-lock leds flashing.
I've not had any problem with wl drivers previously in F10.
@finditsol, did you enable the rpmfusion
repo and do 'yum install akmod-wl' (from your wired connection), then reboot and check NetworkManager?
