Hey People,

I am seeking for some help at setting up WiFi for my HP pavilion dv6 netbook. I have tried to get it work by installing broadcom-wl package from rpm fusion repo but there is still no Wifi option on my machine.

Do you have any idea hownto get that horrible wifi adapter work on F26?

Many thanks,

I am using my broadcom BCM43142; but I am using the broadcom-wl-dkms drivers from unitedrpms compatible with your BCM4312...

I was having a similar issue with my broadcom wireless drivers and, in the end, what fixed it was disabling "Secure Boot" in the bios. Total insanity--
