At least you still have your wireless device 802.11x recognised by
lspci. Mine has completely gone missing but bluetooth is responsive (
recognised as a USB device ) to the laptop's "wireless switch" which
is in front of the laptop. Not sure why this is yet and am running F7.

Both bluetooth and 802.11g are Broadcom devices.
