Please Help with my Wifi Driver

asked 2019-01-18 14:12:15 -0600

Hello everyone. Thank you for allowing me to use your wonderful forum.

Although I have been using Fedora for years, I am not a power user. I do not remember how to install my wifi driver on Fedora 25 64-bit*. Years ago I posted on a forum and someone gave me a simple script to run that did the trick.

According to command lspci, I have a Broadcom Limited BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller.

I downloaded the driver from the first link on this page https://docs.broadcom.com/docs/12358410.

However, I do not know what to do next. When I navigate to the driver folder using bash, I do see ''Makefile". When I type 'make', I get an error:

KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/uname -r/build M=pwd make[1]: * /lib/modules/4.8.6-300.fc25.x86_64/build: No such file or directory.  Stop. Makefile:159: recipe for target 'all' failed make: * [all] Error 2

Could anyone please help me?

*I know that Fedora 25 is not the newest version of Fedora. However, I found that Fedora 26 and 28 were extremely unstable on my computer. Fedora 27 was stable but slow. I understand that newer versions are probably more secure. However, this is a risk I am willing to take for usability.
