I think there is a problem in wifi driver and firefox my fedora 24 .(Acer Aspire E5 , intel i3 ,)

Sometime after booting firefox tends to freeze and wifi connection is gone out. Though I get out the situation using

Alt+tab to switch into another window.

I thought systemctl restart NetworkManager will work . But it did not . I had to reboot again. This link may be helpful. Whenever I try this , this does not help.

[ppaul@pi ~]$ iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

[ppaul@pi ~]$ ifconfig wlp2s0 up

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted

It is showing. I can't identify what is happening . It is very annoying bug , I have to restart again and again. Can anyone suggest what to do?

for convenience following is supplied .

[ppaul@pi ~]$ lspci | grep -i wireless

I have the same problem since kernel 4.7.3 arrived, never before. With Broadcom in my case, and akmod. I guess it's a bug. Have you reported it?
