The kmod-wl package for this kernel number is updated, but the wifi icon does not show. I'm running on kernel 4.9.10 and everything works fine, but I'm stuck with this kernel if I don't find a way to solve the wifi problem. It's the same problem with kernel 4.9.13. I saw once during startup a message about dependency problem, but when I ran a rebbot the message was not there.

I ran a modprobe wl, and the output is:

modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/4.9.12-200.fc25.x86_64

Does somebody have an idea how I can proceed to fix this?

I can't get any Wireless ac1200 usb 3.0 to work on Fedora 25. I think Linux must be having problems getting up to speed on dual band usb 3.0 wireless adapters.
