I just installed Fedora 33 Workstation and I am having trouble getting wifi to work. My wifi card has previously worked with Arch, Manjaro, and Ubuntu.
I’ve seen a lot of posts out there about difficulties getting Broadcom devices to work with Fedora, but none of what I’ve seen suggested has worked for me.
My card is detected:
$ lspci | grep -i broadcom 04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)
dnf update then
dnf install broadcom-wl then rebooted. It is still not recognized:
lo no wireless extensions. enp6s0 no wireless extensions. eno1 no wireless extensions. virbr0 no wireless extensions. virbr0-nic no wireless extensions.
akmods --force and get an error. Does this mean I need to install a different kernel? I have kernel-devel installed and it’s the latest version.
