Moved from Windows To Fedora - Wifi doesn't work - broadcom BCM4352

I have just moved from windows 10 to fedora 39. It looks great but my wifi card gets no driver.
I have tried many thinks until now but at the end no driver is attached to my card.

I have been able to get broadcom-wl from rpm fusion repo. It has been installed without issue but I don’t find wl in the list after executing following command lsmod |grep wl

broadcom-wl.noarch @rpmfusion-nonfree

inxi -n
Device-1: Broadcom BCM4352 802.11ac Dual Band Wireless Network Adapter
driver: N/A
IF-ID-1: enp0s20u1c4i2 state: up speed: N/A duplex: N/A
mac: 16:94:6c:17:58:15

I don’t now if someone can help me ?! Thanks a lot, Frédéric

Please post (as preformatted text) using

the output of dnf list installed \*-wl and lspci | grep -iA4 network

Also tell us if you have an ethernet (wired) connection as a fall-back.

Step 0) if possible, make sure your Fedora packages and vendor firmware are fully updated. This helps avoid wasting time on an issue that has already been fixed. As a long-time linux user, I find it important to have USB network, bluetooth, and wifi dongles to use when an install doesn’t support one of those devices.

Step 1) Check that your wl module didn’t get blacklisted by one the the previous attempts:

$ grep GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX /etc/default/grub
$ grep wl /etc/modprobe.d/*

Step 2) capture some error messages

$ journalctl -b -g wl
$ journalctl -b -g wifi

Step 4) check for your system in the LHDB. There are often user comments that address problems specific to a particular system.

Hi Jeff,
Thanks a lot for helping. See replies to your questions below.

Hi George,
I went on I have an issue on my material.

Driver is not found or not configured.

The device is supported by kernel versions 4.1 and newer.

You are probably running into a conflict between Lenovo’s version of the BCM4352 and current linux kernels. Such issues are sometimes fixed in BIOS updates from the vendor.

Some LHDB probes for Lenovo Yoga 3 report “working” with different (I assume replacements for the original) wifi cards. Intel generally has good support for linux, so you should check to see if Intel models that work are still available for purchase.

See: [iFixit ]Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Wireless Card Replacement(Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Wireless Card Replacement - iFixit Repair Guide). Internet searches may give you some details of replacement wifi cards that work with linux.
