    Re: WIFI NOT WORKING - Broadcom Limited BCM43142

    This worked for me with a 4352 card:

    Code:
    sudo dnf install -y https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonf...-25.noarch.rpm https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free...-25.noarch.rpm
    sudo dnf install -y broadcom-wl kernel-devel
    sudo akmods --force --kernel `uname -r` --akmod wl
    sudo modprobe -a wl

    Remove broadcom-wl. According to your commands you already installed rpmfusion free and non-free repos. Install akmod-wl, kernel-devel, akmods. Then install wifi driver: "sudo modprobe wl". Check to see if you have a wifi connection. If you don't, reboot. Hopefully you now have wifi.

    The above worked on a broadcom 42142 which is exactly what you have: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/que...43142-support/
