    BCM43142 in Fedora 24 not working

    Hello,

    I've recently upgraded from Fedora 22 to 24 and my wireless is no longer working. Running "modprobe wl", I get the message "modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory ....." and when I run "akmods --force --kernel `uname -r` --akmod wl", it checks the packages but doesn't build one for wl.

    I'm running the kernel-4.6.5-300.fc24.x86_64 and the wireless does work in kernel-4.4.14-200.fc22.x86_64.

    Is there anything else I can try?

    Thanks!

    Have you installed kternel-devel and akmod-wl?

    Have you tried this?

    sudo akmods --force
    sudo modprobe wl

    Yep, doesn't do anything. Checks for kmods but doesn't see anything amiss, and no module found by modprobe.
