Broadcom and Realtek Networking

Some computers with specific Broadcom or Realtek chipsets may require additional drivers to be installed. These should be automatically installed if you were connected to the internet during installation.

We can’t include these by default as they may break other WiFi devices.

You’ll need to connect to the internet, you can do this via Ethernet or USB tethering from your phone. iPhones will automatically tether over USB when connected, Android phones may require you to switch the USB mode.

On Broadcom, install broadcom-wl and kmod-wl

sudo dnf install kmod-wl broadcom-wl

On Realtek, install kmod-wl only

sudo dnf install kmod-wl

Then reboot!
