Well, not everything you said makes sense. Let's see if I can condense
this into something I can follow.
1. You can't get the broadcom card to work with Fedora (9?)?
2. You've tried a couple of howtos and none have worked? (What howtos?
3. Now you can't get the Windows driver to work?
4. You tried the howto from dnmouse.org and can get the light on, and an
SELinux error which you fixed?
5. This doesn't tell us if you actually got the card working in Fedora.
6. The Fedora setup shouldn't have been affected by anything you did in
fedora. However, without knowing which guidelines you used, I can't say
I've run a broadcom card in Fedora for 2 years now without any trouble
at all. What card are you using? What chipset? What does lspci and
You haven't really given us a lot of detail on WHAT exactly is happening
or not happening. Just that it doesn't work.
I really rather doubt re-installing Windows is necessary. Re-installing
he broadcom drivers, maybe. It's possible there are setting in Linux
being carried across a restarts into Windows. But I've not seen that
problem in a while.
