The RH7 series kernels TG3 driver did not support bcm5700 so...
Here is how I have done the bcm5700 in the past. YMMV
If you break it you get to keep all the pieceZ
I am not sure where to get the bcm5700 driver src
you will need the bcm5700 driver and you will need to compile it for your
make sure you have the source installed and configured
edit the EXTRAVERSION to be correct
cp configs/yourkernelversion .config
that is all you need to align the kernel source.
now untar the bcm drivers and run
make && make install
change eth0 to = bcm5700
all should be well YMMV

Try the TG3 driver. The bcm5700 drivers from BroadCom are also supposed
to work, but you'll have to compile them yourself for Fedora.
