 +===== Summary =====
 +With Fedora 15 almost everything worked right from the start --except wireless. I tried every available driver both binary and complied from source and nothing worked. In the end I installed Fedora 16 beta which also does not ship with a working wireless driver, but works with the broadcom-sta driver available from the the Broadcom website. ​
