Hi guys, today I've tried Fedora24 in live mode and WiFi works correctly. Now I've installed but WiFi doesn't work, but during the installation I was connected to WiFi. I've Intel Wireless 7260 and I've follow this guide, but doesn't work.

The Live ISOs do not install all of the same packages that they use to operate when you choose to use the installation tool. The package you are looking for to enable WiFi on the 7260 is:


I would make sure it is not already installed, or just run the below to install it:

# dnf install iwl7260-firmware.noarch

Afterwards, reboot your machine or '# modprobe iwlwifi' and then '# systemctl restart NetworkManager' and the WiFi should come up afterwards.

If you're using Cinnamon, check the networking settings. I found I had to turn wifi on manually there to get it to come on.
