List the details of the affected parts, your architecture, operating system release. This may be easily executed by fpaste --sysinfo.

Gathering system info ........................ Uploading {12.8KiB}.....

Oh. I forgot the --printonly option. fpaste --sysinfo --printonly > info.txt and upload the contents to https://fpaste.org

Thanks for your patience. I know it is running thin. The steps will be

  1. Pinpoint the model of the device
  2. Match the module
  3. Find a link to the particular package or to the raw module itself
  4. Load module using insmod or modprobe

We are working on getting the wifi device active and scanning; then you will be on your way.

Hey, I'm resurrecting a dead thread but I think my solution was the "soft key" wifi button. It was on air plane mode by default, touch the orange wifi button and it turns blue, in-turn switching wifi on

Ano.

Well on that case you may need to manually download the files and do a local install.

If you are using broadcom you need to install rpmfusion.org repos and then install akmod-wl and kernel-devel so it will install module for broadcom wireless card.

Follow rpmfusion.org http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration and install free and nonfree.

then

sudo dnf install akmod-wl kernel-devel

reboot and it should work.

Good Luck.

If you download the files on another machine, you can then install them off eg. a USB stick.

Any error that can you tell us?

Since it is not from a repo, the installation will not go for all the packages at once. He has to figure the dependency tree manually. So, he would go say, http://rpm.pbone.net/ or http://rpmfind.net/ , try getting the dependency listings there and …

If he has the name of the module needed, he could probably avoid akmod until network is up. Remember he has kernel upgrades to do.
