I'm new to Linux, and I am enjoying it a lot. I migrated from windows and Fedora is amazing except for one small problem.

I installed Fedora 22 and the latest kernel, and I am unable to connect or even see any sort of WiFi related settings or properties in the network manager.

I know its an issues with my Broadcom 4352 WiFi card, and the funny thing is that my Bluetooth works completely fine. I know this question has been asked multiple times, and I attempted to use some of the solutions mentioned in other posts with similar issues, however, these solutions did not work. Odds are I messed up somewhere.

I tried to install ak-mod wl and k-mod wl but those did not seem to work. Once again, I probably messed up somewhere.

I really need help guys. I would love to continue using fedora.

Hello: the best and most simple way to do it is :

1) Install the rpmfusions free and non free (Just go to , etc...)

2) Connect to the internet (ethernet or insert a TP-Link TL-821 dongle in USB port). (inexpensive)

3) sudo dnf install kmod-wl akmod.wl kernel_devel

4) remove ethernet or USB Dongle, and reboot : Wifi should now work (See access points)

Hope that helps, Andre GxxxxL

Have you installed "broadcom-wl"? . positive? the answer is "broadcom-wl" isn't patched for uses the new 4.0.4-* kernel on Fedora 22, maybe incompatible with the current Broadcom STA driver. I have rebuilt and patched some parts (checking how to other distributions Linux resolved the compatibility current kernel), I do not if it works. My wifi card is a atheros 'AR9287'.

I had the same issue and today I found the reason was the network card in my computer is Broad-com and the default Linux drivers does not support correctly. Installing Broadcom drivers fixed the issue. Here is a complete guide how to install the drivers
