Hi, I just install Fedora 20 and I don't have wifi. I check my wireless card, is a broadcom 43142 but I can't find any driver. image description

My network settings only shows my ethernet configuration, nothing about wireless connections.

Somebody can help me with this?

PS: Sorry for my english, I hope u can understand me.

Thanks! I tried to fix it. I could install RPM fusion without problems but when I try to install the akmod-wl from the webpage it gave me and error:

You need to install kernel-devel

sudo yum install kernel-devel
sudo akmod
sudo modprobe  wl
sudo service restart NetworkManager

That should fix it.

You need to install and then instal akmod-wl that will take care of your broadcom card.

Good Luck
