When I turn on my computer, Wi-Fi is enabled and connected. However, once I log in, Wi-Fi disables itself and airplane mode comes on. Every time I log in, I have to go to the menu on the top right and re-enable Wi-Fi.

Turn on your Bluetooth. Enable on boot from EFI/BIOS if that's an option.

Some WiFi chipsets; the radios handle both WiFi and Bluetooth.

Unfortunately, that did not work for me. There was not an option in the BIOS. The weird thing is that when the computer turns on, Wi-Fi is working fine, but when I log in, it turns itself off.

Run lspci and see which Wifi adapter you are using. What DE are you using (Gnome, KDE?). Did this just start happening, or was it after an update? Which version of Fedora are you on?
