The wifi card is supported by Fedora; Check all switch in your laptop; maybe you need power on.... if not then you can update to current firmware...

Download the updated firmware

1) wget -c https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/iwlwifi/linux-firmware.git/snapshot/linux-firmware-iwlwifi-fw-2017-11-15.tar.gz

Extract 2) tar xmzvf linux-firmware-iwlwifi-fw-2017-11-15.targz. -C $PWD

Make build directories 3) mkdir -p $HOME/iwlwifi

Now the build

4) pushd linux-firmware-iwlwifi-fw-2017-11-15/

5) make -j 4 DESTDIR=$HOME/iwlwifi FIRMWAREDIR=/usr/lib/firmware install

6) rm -f "$HOME/iwlwifi/usr/lib/firmware/"{Makefile,README,configure,GPL-3}

7) install -d "$HOME/iwlwifi/usr/share/licenses/linux-firmware"

8) install -Dm644 LICEN* WHENCE "$HOME/iwlwifi/usr/share/licenses/linux-firmware/"

Trigger a microcode reload for configurations not using early updates

install -d "$HOME/iwlwifi/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d"

echo 'w /sys/devices/system/cpu/microcode/reload - - - - 1' >"$HOME/iwlwifi/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/linux-firmware.conf" popd

pushd $HOME/iwlwifi su cp -n * / popd

NOw reboot!
