I have been installing wireless in Fedora with a broadcom chip since Fedora 13. Generally I was able to get it to work with the kmod-wl and broadcom-wl packages that corresponded to the Fedora version I was operating. I found the appropriate kmod-wl version (6.30.223.271-4.fc22) at rpmfind.net . I have been unable to find the corresponding broadcom-wl package. The closest version I have found is 6.30.223.271-1.fc22. Here is some information that might be helpful.

lspci | grep -i broadcom
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)
0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)

rpm -qa |grep -- -wl
kmod-wl-4.2.8-200.fc22.i686-6.30.223.271-4.fc22.i686
akmod-wl-6.30.223.248-9.fc22.i686
kmod-wl-6.30.223.271-4.fc22.i686
broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-1.fc22.noarch

uname -r
4.2.8-200.fc22.i686

lsmod | grep wl

wl                   6209536  0

cfg80211              475136  1 wl

If there is any other information needed, just let me know.

@hhlp: That may not necessarily be a duplicate since rpm -qa |grep -- -wl shows that he has akmod-wl-6.30.223.248-9.fc22.i686 installed already...

Not sure though you would install kmod and akmod.
