I have installed Fedora 27 on a HP probook 6475b with widows 7 already installed. Installation process was Ok ... main problem the wifi card is not recognized, model is Broadcom BCM943228HM4L, I can connect to Internet only by cable.

Not much experience with Linux, I tried to follow the procedure described here: but still no result and wifi card is still not recognized..

Thanks for any help

Please post output of dmesg: run dmesg | fpaste and copy the link. sudo dnf install fpaste if fpaste isn't installed.

hi you can try these steps.

open terminal and type lspci command to find out your wireless card name.

sample output :

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 7th Gen Core processor DRAM Controller (rev 09)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 7th Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C810 Series Chipset Family USB xHCI Host Controller (rev 04)
00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C816 Chipset Family MEI Controller #1 (rev 04)
00:16.3 Serial controller: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C810 Series Chipset Family KT Controller (rev 04)
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 85492G Gigabit Network Connection (Lewisville) (rev 04)
03:00.0 **Network controller: Intel Corporation Xentrino Advanced-N 9205 [Delta Peak] (rev 38)**

Next you need to enable RPMfusion repos, ignore if already installed.

Sudo dnf install$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

perform system update by using dnf update command and reboot the system to ensure latest kernel is installed.

next install this package.

sudo dnf install kmod-wl

once install is completed reboot the system. you should now be able to select network on network manager option.
