I have been trying to get the WiFi to work after installing Fedora 37. It worked perfect from the flash drive. But quit immediately after all the updates installed. Wouldn’t even show I had WiFi as an option in the settings/connections. After a lot of searching I found this thread (WiFi stopped working after update, how to rollback?).
I followed your advice and did this:
sudo dnf downgrade iwl*firmware*
It worked! But now Fedora wants to update again (see screen shot).
1) In the future - How can I keep the current WiFi firmware but allow other updates to happen?
2) Could keeping the older WiFi firmware cause a problem?
3) Is there an alternative solution you would recommend?
Yes, you can always use the downgrade command to install an older version of a package—the oldest one you’ll have access to is the one in the fedora repo—which is the version of the package at the time of the Fedora release.
