I just recently purchased a new desktop (HP Envy 700) and I'm trying to install Fedora 20 on my other partition after having downgraded the thing to Windows 7.

When I run the Fedora LiveUSB on my ThinkPad, WiFi works right out of the box, but this appears to be slightly different with the desktop. So I'm assuming I'll need some other drivers to make it work.

My card is a Broadcom BCM4352HMB, which according to this website is not supported yet. So what else can I do to get wifi working? Thanks

Try the kmod-wl package from RPMFusion and see if that works for you.

you first get the details of your wifi card using this command - $lspci | grep -i broadcom then use the following command as root - yum search kmod-wl and see what the packages found then write yum install kmod-wl you should do all this things in terminal.
