Hi all,

I am new with Fedora and I liked it after months of trying other distros, but I still have big problem with my Wifi:

Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Limited BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43a0] (rev 03)

After a lot of search I found this and it work with me in the beginning:

But after long using, many times I lose the internet and my browser keep loading for up to 3-4 minutes (not working but not disconnected and keep loading) and sometimes I must reboot fedora. After any Kernel update I must force reinstall the driver using the Terminal.

there is already a good driver for my wifi on other distro but I couldi't find it and it's called (Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source from bcmwl-kernel-source)

Other question about something I see it when Fedora boot up and I don't know if it's normal or big problem need to be fixed?

Have you had a look at ? Have you installed the broadcom-wl package?

First big thanks to genodeftest for his 100% working solution:

1- Enable free and non free RPM-fusion:

2- Installed broadcom-wl and kmod-wl:

sudo dnf install -y broadcom-wl kmod-wl

3- Run depmod:

sudo depmod -a

If no errors you are fine

4- And finally modprobe on wl:

sudo modprobe wl

If no errors you are fine

Finely restart Fedora, This worked with me 100%
