At which version?
I don't know. I've been following several threads here
and it appears
that one of the kernel updates broke a few things. You would have to
search the list archives.

No. Not without re-installing it, which means starting all over again, in
which case I might as well start with an fc13 system.
Or hang on for fc14. But that assumes things will get fixed.
I would wait for FC14
if you want to rebuild. At that point FC12 will
become End-of-Life, which basically means unsupported. This is how
Fedora is structured.

What exactly are the older files? I can transfer files via a USB drive.
your yum updates log file and see what was updated when you lost
access to your wireless card. That is always a good place to start.

Yes, I have access from my desktop machines.
Then you will have to find a repo that
will allow you to download the
older files that were upgraded. Google for how to create and add a
local rpm repo and put them in that directory and then run the
appropriate yum line to 'downgrade' to them. Hopefully this will bring
the AirPort back to life.
