Broadcom wireless not working with latest builds

I have my broadcom wireless drivers installed and working on my FC14 setup, when the 2.6.35.10-72(and 74).fc14.i686 came up my wireless doesn't work. Making me revert to using version 2.6.35.6-48.fc14.i686. Am I going to have to install the broadcom everytime the kernel is updated? I don't recall doing that on fc13.

Re: Broadcom wireless not working with latest builds

Normally, you don't have to do anything special. If it's the broadcom-wl driver from RPM Fusion, then what you described occasionally happens. Take a moment to list the relevant installed packages...
Code:
rpm -qa | grep -e kernel -e kmod-wl -e broadcom-wl | sort
All of that should make sense regarding the version numbers and your kernels. Another thing to try is the akmod-wl version of the driver. Install that and reboot into the new kernel. It should build the kmods for you.

If it's not the broadcom-wl driver you're talking about, then of course disregard the above.

I will look into that it is the Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev01) I gathered this from the lspci command. And may not be able to fully troubleshoot until I can find the package and put it on usb stick. No internet connection at work for my laptop without the wireless.

For latest to day was the fix I placed it on a thumb drive and executed it from my laptop.
