Enable Wi-Fi on Dell Inspiron 1525 – Fedora 14

April 3, 2011

I was just upgrading F12 to F14 in my friend’s Dell Inspiron 1525. Everything was fine, except when the WiFi is switched on, its not detected by F14. I had to do some amount of googling to get it right. I thought I could just share it here.

First of see that you have RPM fusion repos added to your repos list. Then just install kmod-wl package after updating you system.

yum upgrade

yum install kmod-wl

reboot

Now just reboot your system and use the hardware switch to turn on WiFi. Everything should be working now.
