no wifi access with fedora 25

asked 2017-04-04 03:56:40 -0500


I have a dual booting system with fedora 25 and windows 10. The system worked fine when I was connected to my home network but haven't been able to connect to any mobile hotspots(tried three).

the wifi icon is mostly a question mark but sometimes shows the wifi logo but irrespective of that ia m unable to connect to any of these hotspots. I have virtualbox installed but no VM's yet.

please help complete stranger to Linux distros, please give a step by step tutorial if possible.

Did you forget to paste the result, or the result was empty?

Please don't additional information as an answer to your question. Instead, please edit your original question.

Now, let's do this. What's the output of lspci?
