What did you try so far?

General steps:
1.) Activate rpmfusion repositories (free and non-free) from Configuration - RPM Fusion
2.) install driver: sudo dnf install broadcom-wl


OMG!!! thanks, i had installed rpmfusion repositories , (but only free), so when i tried to do “sudo dnf install broadcom-wl” i got an error, but now i also installed the bon-free and i already have wifi, thank you so much, i ḿ so ashamed, it seems i didn’t do a good search… thank you :sparkling_heart:
