asus wireless with wl driver on fedora 25

I have many troubles using my Asus PCE-AC68 wireless adapter on fedora 25. On fedora 22 (?) at the end I was able to use it.

I have followed insttruction herehere

even if they are not updated, for example now I have downloaded the driver from https://www.broadcom.com/support/download-search/?pf=Wireless+LAN+Infrastructure and I have choosen Linux® STA 64-bit driver.

First problem: it didn't compile with messages like these:

/home/user1/Scaricati/hybrid_wl_f23/src/wl/sys/wl_cfg80211_hybrid.c:239:12: error: ‘IEEE80211_BAND_2GHZ’ undeclared here (not in a function)
  .band   = IEEE80211_BAND_2GHZ,  \

I have solved this looking at this change of the kernel:

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/commit/drivers/staging/rtl8723au/os_dep/ioctl_cfg80211.c?id=57fbcce37be7c1d2622b56587c10ade00e96afa3

and I have simply renamed IEEE with NL. I worked.

Then I have followed the instructions and the mod seems to be installed, in fact I was able to see the wireless adapter in the Network manager.

Then everything stopped to work. The system was so unstable that it was difficult to reboot the pc. The wireless never worked.

Suggestions?
