I am using a Acer E 15 . I installed fedora 22 into it . But after installation the wireless is not working . Even I can not start with the "Fn + F3" key.

After that I tried running iwconfig , which gave me : enp2s0 no wireless extension virbr0-nic no wireless extension virbr0 no wireless extension lo no wireless extension

So , what should I do now ?

If you run lspci, do you see your wireless card listed there? (If list is long you try filter it with lspci | grep Network). Also, you can check whether Kernel modules are loaded: lsmod | grep wl

This one may also help you...

My fedora kernel version is : 4.1.6-201.fc22.x86_64 and the network card version for wireless is :03:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042 (rev 30)

Is there any way I can get help . Is this kernel is still supported . If so then how ?

Sorry, @Mahabub-Islam, I can't help you further with this matter but I quickly searched the internet for "fedora Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042", and found a few interesting results. It may be that your card is not yet supported by the kernel.

(You are having a very recent kernel btw).
