    Try booting from a LiveUSB and see if it finds your WiFi. If it doesn't find it then it's hardware issue.

    And finally... I use USB tethering, [on Android : USB Network sharing]... Fedora 27 can connect to internet, but I don't know if the speed on 4G network or 3G network... I can't check it on web base...

    By the way... it [Fedora 27] detect it smoothly... no need configure anything...

    ok bro antikythera... I follow it https://forums.fedoraforum.org/showt...kmark-it-first and still try to install inxi using dnf and execute the command below to ascertain hardware information and operating system architecture...

    Its not there on fedoraproject collect hardware information like application near network manager button, and we just anable it or disable it...?

    i'll try this one first... https://forums.fedoraforum.org/showt...2-11b-g-driver...

    the result was make me not convident...
    when booting first it show error...
    Code:
    [0.110991] b43-pci-bridge 0000:04:00:0 : can't enable device : BAR 0 [mem 0x00000000-0x00003fff 64bit] not claimed
    after finish booting and then login to gnome, when I push the WiFi button on gnome desktop, it shown information : Airphone mode enabled.
    It's strange...

    The reason why I don't want using USB tethering... cause it scaring me... It must use USB cable, I scary it make the smartphone will hot cause it always charging, and the cable must plug in... plug out.. it make the USB hole of laptop will destroy/broken-down/ or USB port the hole will be bigger... and more scariest is when you use your laptop with cable plug in with smartphone at cafe... your phone stolen...


    Okey... I'll try it (https://www.tekbyte.net/install-broa...for-fedora-27/) again..
