OK, let's try a different method...
run:
Code: [Select]
su
then
Code: [Select]
yum install broadcom-wl
then if necessary reboot.

If wireless doesn't spring to life, what's te output from:
Code: [Select]
modprobe wl
now ?

OK, try removing both:
Code: [Select]
su
then
Code: [Select]
yum remove akmod-wl
then
Code: [Select]
yum remove broadcom-wl
then
Code: [Select]
yum update -y
then REBOOT

then run:
Code: [Select]
su
then
Code: [Select]
yum install akmod-wl "kernel-devel-uname-r == $(uname -r)"
then
Code: [Select]
yum update -y
then REBOOT again.

Any difference ?

Give it a shot then ;)

Do a full system update, reboot, then try installing kmod-wl
