Hi Chetan

If you have Broadcom wireless adapter you can use following procedure
I am assuming that you have other internet connection.

Install the rpmfusion repositories. You can do that by installing following
RPMs.
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Install the broadcom drivers
$ yum install broadcom-wl.noarch
$reboot

Now network manager will detect the wireless network.

Let me know if you want further assistance.
