I just installed a fresh version of Fedora 25 as a dual boot with Windows 10 on an asus k501ux, and I am unable to acces wifi, despite installing the proper drivers (I think).

# lspci | grep Network
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7265 (rev 59)

I followed these recommendations without succes (rpmfusion): https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/que....

# dmesg | grep iwl

moon's ago I had a similar problem in a dual boot env. (WinXP/Fedora)

when I switched off wlan under Windows I was unable to activate under Linux. I had to reboot to Windows,switch wlan on, reboot to Linux....

IIRC, there was some special software involved, HP-Manager-SOMETHING

maybe this is the case for you too.

maybe switching to a newer firmware might help:




P.S. your provided link is dead. anyway, IIRC the driver is already in the kernel, means: you only must provide the correct firmware.

P.P.S you may read what is told about iwlwifi here (middle of the page):
