I installed Fedora 21 on a LENOVO Ideapad 310 (core i5) that I recently go. The problem is the wireless network card is not detected so I cannot connect to the wireless network. It does pick up the wired network card so I am able to access the internet through an ethernet cable.

I've searched already and have tried various commands, including,

sudo yum install kmod-wl
sudo yum install akmods kernel-dvel
sudo yum update
sudo yum install broadcom-wl
sudo yum install b43-fwcutter
sudo yum install iwlwifi
sudo yum install ath5k

when I type,

lspci | grep et

I only see a Realtek wired network adapter... I don't see a wireless adapter name at all, which leads me to believe it is not even being recognized.

I'm currently upgrading to Fedora 25. What else can I try? Any suggestions would be appreciated..

run lspci | grep -i wi to get more info on your WiFI card

let's do the "grep" manually: does lspci return anything that looks like a Wireless Network Adapter? Feel free to paste the entire output here

I ran lspci and didn't really see anything like a Wireless Network Adapter.. I pasted output into link provided.
