I know this is somewhat of a duplicate of other questions but I did not get any of the other posts to work properly.

I am on a MacBook Pro Mid-2010 Intel Core 2 Duo Dual-Boot OS X 10.11 and Fedora 23.

Output of 'lspci | grep -i broadcom' is 02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01) 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5764M Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10)

I followed this forum post up until the last step successfully where I encountered 'Cannot open input file wl_apsta_mimo.o'

My Wired drivers work fine and I can connect from there. Thanks in advance for help.

P.S. Fedora 23 is the first ever Linux distro I have installed on anything and I installed it the morning before this post. Regularly I would be more patient and try things myself but I need wireless fast so I turned to this. My only experience with terminal is a 3-Hour online course I took and some goofing around on Mac terminal so if there is anyway to avoid more technical commands that would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, is not ? just configure RPMFusion repos and do :

dnf install wl-kmod


akmod-wl      x86_64   rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing    5.5 M
broadcom-wl     noarch   rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing    24 k
