Firstly, get an ethernet connect (like with an internet cable) or otherwise get an internet connection up and running via some other means (other than using your WiFi as obviously it's not working at the moment for you). Then run:

sudo dnf install -y https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-25.noarch.rpm
sudo dnf install -y broadcom-wl
sudo modprobe -a wl

then reboot.
