Hi: I have installed fedora 20 on my dell laptop, I can see the wireless, after choose a network, start to connect, it tried a few minutes, then show "not connect". If I type 'lspci' , it shows:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller (rev 09) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) 00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT HD Audio Controller (rev 09) 00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP USB xHCI HC (rev 04) 00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP HECI #0 (rev 04) 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP HD Audio Controller (rev 04) 00:1c.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP PCI Express Root Port 1 (rev e4) 00:1c.2 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP PCI Express Root Port 3 (rev e4) 00:1c.3 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP PCI Express Root Port 4 (rev e4) 00:1d.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP USB EHCI #1 (rev 04) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP LPC Controller (rev 04) 00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP SATA Controller 1 [AHCI mode] (rev 04) 00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP SMBus Controller (rev 04) 02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 7260 (rev 73) 03:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS5227 PCI Express Card Reader (rev 01)

I go to the /lib/firmware, type

ls |grep '7260'

I will see the driver for 7260:

iwlwifi-7260-7.ucode iwlwifi-7260-8.ucode

I also try "sudo yum install broadcom-wl", it shows:

Anyone help me with this? Thank you. Best, Hao

It looks like you need to start with a 3.13. kernel, or at least have a kmod-wl package that matches the kernel you do have.

Right now my F20 system is running 3.13.4, and there is a kmod-wl package in RPM Fusion to match: http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/updates/20/x86_64/repoview/kmod-wl-3.13.4-200.fc20.x86_64.html

So you should use Yum (or whatever update mechanism you do use, Yumex, etc.) to update your whole system.

Then, once you have the 3.13.4 kernel, try to install broadcom-wl again. It should go better this time.

@boruoshihao: Adding to the above; as with most kmod* packages, either you need to wait for the kmod-* package specific to the kernel you have (which has pre-built kernel modules) to get pushed to the repos; or you can install akmod-* which will try and build the module(s) automatically after a kernel update. Usually there's a bit of a delay between a new kernel update and a new kmod-* package.
