The last modprobe command did the trick. Thanks a ton!

2016-12-23 04:27:07 -0600 asked a question No Wi-Fi on Fedora 25 (New to Linux and Fedora)

I just installed Fedora 25 on my laptop and the wifi icon is missing from the system menu and there is no wifi option in the Networks application. I researched a bit and found out that it is because my wireless adapter is a Broadcom adapter. After following the instructions given here in a previous answer as well as the instructions from this blog post, the situation is still the same. No wifi in the system menu or Networks application. Can anybody help me?

I am on a Lenovo G700 laptop, I am running Fedora 25, and lspci returns, among other things,

08:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA8172 Fast Ethernet (rev 10)
