Unfortunately, it sounds like you have a wireless chipset that isn't (yet) supported by any open-source driver. Although this isn't the "official" Fedora way of doing things, you can get wireless working by installing the proprietary Broadcom driver (I'm assuming that your chipset is Broadcom, since that's the most common). To do so, follow the steps below:

  1. Get Internet access from within Fedora, either by tethering to your phone or by wiring up with an Ethernet cable. (Although you could work around this, it's much easier to not have to.)
  2. Install the free and non-free RPMFusion repos (http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration).
  3. Run these commands: dnf install akmod-wl dnf upgrade kernel kernel-devel
  4. Reboot.

Hope that helps!
