Dell n5110 wireless

I have a Dell Inspiron n5110 laptop running Fedora 16, dual booted with Windows 7 Home edition. Everything works fine except the wireless under Fedora (it runs ok under Windows). The wireless hardware is turned on (Fn-F2), but only the wired network interface shows up in the system settings. lspci looks healthy:

09:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1030 [8086:008a] (rev 34)

Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 1030 BGN [8086:5325]

Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 19

Memory at f7e00000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]

Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3

Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+

Capabilities: [e0] Express Endpoint, MSI 00

Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting

Capabilities: [140] Device Serial Number bc-77-37-ff-ff-b3-cd-01

Kernel modules: iwlwifi

The driver, according to Intel, is in the kernel, so I must just be missing some magic incantation...

Please help!
