When Fedora was first installed, wifi worked perfectly. After updates and configuration it ceased to work at all. After following these directions along with dnf update and then rebooting, not only was nothing fixed but the wifi configuration stopped appearing in settings and the upper right corner drop down configuration menu. nmcli device wifi list returns nothing.

This was taken from lspci -nnk:

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43602 802.11ac Wireless LAN SoC [14e4:43ba] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Dell Device [1028:0024]
Kernel modules: brcmfmac, wl

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
