No Wi-Fi or Ethernet in Fedora 22

Recently I upgraded to Fedora 22, but neither the wi-fi nor ethernet will work. Both work fine in Fedora 21 and Windows 7 (dual boot), but whenever I switch to Fedora 22 there is no option to connect to either. Network in the settings shows a proxy connection, but the default wired and wi-fi connections are missing. I have installed broadcom-wl, kmod-wl, akmod-wl and kernel-devel, but all on 21 as I have no way of connecting to the internet to do so on 22. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say you missed something during the upgrade, but this is only based on my personal experience because I had no issues and I have solely 22. (no dual boot) What i'd do is nuke my laptop, install win7, boot 21 from a live usb, and upgrade.

And be very careful with commands because all it takes is one misplaced dot or slash. good luck. :]

*btw, if there was any surgery done to config files, id imagine that would be a clue to these troubles
