I've seen this quite a bit on some forums, none of the presented solutions have worked for me. Here are the outputs for running the following commands in terminal:
$ uname -r 4.1.7-200.fc22.x86_64 $ lspci |grep Broadcom 02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03) $ rpm -qa |grep -- -wl broadcom-wl-188.8.131.52-2.fc22.noarch kmod-wl-4.0.4-301.fc22.x86_64-184.108.40.206-8.fc22.1.x86_64 akmod-wl-220.127.116.11-9.fc22.x86_64 kmod-wl-18.104.22.168-8.fc22.1.x86_64 kmod-wl-4.1.7-200.fc22.x86_64-22.214.171.124-9.fc22.x86_64
It seems to me that kmod is installed properly, however when I do this:
$ akmods --force Checking kmods exist for 4.1.7-200.fc22.x86_64 [ OK ]
Nothing else happens - as far as I'm aware it's supposed to trigger some kind of installation process (that might be something entirely different though, I'm very new to Linux). Also, this is what it prints when I search for my adapter manually:

Top one is my USB wlan adapter, middle one is the built in one I'd like to get running. Not sure about the last one.
USB wlan adapters are recognized immediatly upon plugging them in, so the hardware not working seems to be a driver problem.
