Wifi is not working correctly.
Can see the list nearby APs in the nm-applet, and iwlist.

D.Anders was hanging out in #fedora-arm the other day, and he
supposedly fixed this by doing something with firmware files.
Unfortunately I don't have the chat logs any more.

How can I find out which firmware file is being loaded?
wl12xx: firmware booted (Rev 18.104.22.168.98)
