Fedora 25 is not showing the wifi symbol on my Lenovo G500. Also, Bluetooth is not working. I am new to Linux — how can I easily install whatever drivers are needed?

The first step would be to figure out which WiFi card you have. Can you open up a terminal and show the output of lspci? There should be an entry there ethernet as well as WiFi/wireless with the make and model. I would then search for something along the lines of "yourwificard wireless Fedora" to get you started towards getting the driver.
