Whenever I try connecting to the wireless connection I use, I get stuck in a loading cycle. This cycle goes on for about thirty seconds or so, before Network-Manager eventually just gives up, and I have to prompt the program to connect again.

I've entered in my password correctly, so it's not bugging me about that, and I haven't touched the IvP4/6 settings or anything similar.

I'm using Fedora 23. My network controller is the BCM43142, which I'm using the akmod-wl driver for. I don't seem to have any problems with the driver, (at least, not anymore) but Network-Manager isn't working.

This is the output of journalctl -u NetworkManager.service :

Once the network manager has given up, as root run the command journalctl -u NetworkManager.service and look for any errrors.

Added the result to the main post. Seems like DHCP is timing out for some reason...
