    Not finding my wireless card

    So in my computer I have the following wireless card, an Asus - PCE-AC56 PCI-Express x1 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi Adapter. I created a bootable Fedora 28 Workstation live image and I attempted to test it before installing. Went to wifi and it said it did not find any wireless adapter. Do I need to download a specific driver? On the Asus site it looks like they don't have a Linux version. I only had a quick look last night and going to try get it working over the weekend. Possible there could be a way that I need to do something to switch it "on" in linux or might be a driver issue.

    Any insight or clues in the right direction would be great

    Just adding my build here incase people might see other issues My build.

    Ok so I done `lspci -nn` and it appears my network controller is Broadcom Limited BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter.

    Re: Not finding my wireless card

    There are all kinds of problems with Broadcom wireless adapters since the drivers are proprietary and Fedora does not supply non-open source modules. Search on 'Broadcom BCM4352 drivers' and see what comes up. There are numerous threads on here. I have a Dell with the same issue except that I have a bcm4312 and have problems finding out how to install drivers every time I upgrade. You can also do a google search for 'linux Broadcom BCM4352 drivers'.
    There is also a Broadcom support site that might help.
