It's not supported.  You can grab rpm's from a few places.  ATrpms
provides them (thanks Axel!) as does FreshRPMS (thanks Matthias!).
The ATrpms are binary kmdl rpms.  The FreshRPMS use dkms[1] so if you
boot a new kernel, the driver will build automatically for that

The ipw3945 driver is being replaced with the iwlwifi driver[2], which
will hopefully end up in the kernel proper.  For F7, the driver is
included, as well as the firmware.  From reading fedora-devel, it
seems to work reasonably for some and not for others.  (I haven't
tried it myself, yet.)
