I've tried for a few hours this morning to install BCM43142 drivers, but have been unsuccessful in doing so

Here is what I have done thus far

gone here configure rpmfusion free and non-free to my yum.repos.d directory

tried to install broadcom-wl, tried to install kmod-wl and akmod-wl

I receive the following error

No package kmod-wl available. No package akmod.wl available. No package kernel_devel available. Error: Unable to find a match. [root@localhost ~]# yum update Yum command has been deprecated, redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf update'. See 'man dnf' and 'man yum2dnf' for more information. To transfer transaction metadata from yum to DNF, run: 'dnf install python-dnf-plugins-extras-migrate && dnf-2 migrate'

Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'rpmfusion-nonfree-updates' from '': Cannot prepare internal mirrorlist: Curl error (7): Couldn't connect to server for [Failed to connect to port 80: Connection timed out], disabling.

PLEASE HELP I am sick of working on this gd problem

You need to use dnf install kmod-wl or dnf install akmod-wl as yum was replaced for dnf on Fedora 22.

RPM Fusion was apparently down earlier today. But it has resolved itself and I am able to update/install packages w/out issue. Still having the issue?
