On this Asus EeePC seashell series Notebook:

After kernel update to 3.6.[12] (plus relative kmod-wl* module) the WiFi
stop work

I have found this article:

Rebuild with "rpmbuild -ba rpmbuild/SPECS/wl-kmod.spec", remove old
module "rmmod wl", uninstall and reinstall new RPMS generated, reload
module "modprobe wl", and test it:

Now WiFi work

Hope this help

Many thanks
