I just installed fedora 26 but wi-fi isn't working. I can't find it in the network settings.

I have mediatek 7630e card.

Already tried to install but didn't work. when i execute ./install I get this:

[root@localhost MT7630E]# ./install
make -C /lib/modules/4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64/build M=/home/joaomarques/.local/share/Trash/files/MT7630E-release/MT7630E/rt2x00 modules
make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.11.8-300.fc26.x86_64/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: *** [Makefile:9: all] Error 2

I'm new to linux. please help.

@jpmarques, please install kernel-headers and kernel-devel packages

I'm making some assumptions here, and they might not be correct, but If you have UEFI-native mode (BIOS, but not BIOS) then you will want to check if Secure Boot is enabled. Additionally, consider enabling BIOS compatibility mode (CSM) which by default disables Secure Boot. After you've sorted this matter out, follow the installation section, but your family is RedHat using the dnf package manager.

build-essentials (dnf):

sudo dnf install make automake gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel kernel-headers

This will install more than you need, but here:

sudo dnf grouplist

sudo dnf groupinstall "C Development Tools and Libraries" "Development Tools"

Quote (github) link above:

Secure Boot

Not being signed, this driver is not expected to work on secure boot.

Important UEFI reading material:

Fedora Project - UEFI

Wikipedia - UEFI

On top of the answer of @Nicholas, I had to execute the following for my laptop prior to executing sudo ./install.

sudo yum install kernel-devel-4.13.9-300.fc27.x86_64
sudo yum install elfutils-libelf-devel

I'm using Fedora 27, by the way.

Then I had to follow the instructions here (see the answer of Pilot6). The BIOS option did not work for me, so I had to use the mokutil option which worked for my laptop.
