I'm now wondering if I should do a clean install, although I don't see what would be creating problems for kernel modules compiled against the new kernel following an upgrade.

A clean install won't help you. There's a bug in anaconda that makes it choose the wrong arch for the kernel:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=211941

There's a lot of bad advice in there, though. I really wouldn't suggest removing the kernel that you have installed -- it'll confuse grubby, at least, and possibly render the system unbootable if you're not thorough. Instead, download the i686 kernel and use:
rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs --replacefiles <kernel.i686.rpm>

Reboot, and your wifi should start working.
