Looks like the solution is...

Step 1: Enable the RPM Fusion Repository

su -
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Step 2: Update System and Install Required Packages

yum -y update
yum -y install broadcom-wl

Step 3: Enjoy Your Wireless

Offline Installation:
The RPMs you'll need for offline installation are broadcom-wl, kmod-wl and kmod-wl-uname-r. For example, for F10 x86_64 (kernel = 2.6.27.5-117) you would need the following RPMs:

broadcom-wl-5.10.27.6-3.fc10.noarch.rpm
kmod-wl-5.10.27.6-5.fc10.5.x86_64.rpm
kmod-wl-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.x86_64-5.10.27.6-5.fc10.5.x86_64.rpm
