Broadcom BCM43142 Fedora 32

Hi guy, I installed Fedora 32 but my WiFi is not working, I have followed this guide but can’t get it to work.
Before I had Fedora 30, and when installing kmod-wl it already worked but not now.
Before you ask me questions about my hardware, I will give you a summary of some commands that I have executed and the response messages.

  • sudo lspci | grep -i broadcom RES: 07:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
  • Install also sudo dnf install akmod-wl, installs correctly.
  • sudo akmods --force RES: Checking kmods exist for 5.8.11-200.fc32.x86_64 [ OK ]
  • lspci -k |grep -A 5 -i broadcom RES: 07:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
    Subsystem: XAVi Technologies Corp. Device 3002
    08:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL810xE PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 07)
    Subsystem: Toshiba Corporation Device f840
    Kernel driver in use: r8169
    Kernel modules: r8169
  • sudo modprobe wl -v RES: modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/5.8.11-200.fc32.x86_64
