I was trying to install my Wifi using https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TG_EHEWHQuM

[root@localhost Downloads]# lspci | grep Wireless
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)
[root@localhost Downloads]# 

Here my version of CentOS

[root@localhost Downloads]# cat /etc/os-release
NAME="CentOS Linux"
VERSION="7 (Core)"
ID="centos"
ID_LIKE="rhel fedora"
VERSION_ID="7"
PRETTY_NAME="CentOS Linux 7 (Core)"
ANSI_COLOR="0;31"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:centos:centos:7"
HOME_URL="https://www.centos.org/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.centos.org/"

CENTOS_MANTISBT_PROJECT="CentOS-7"
CENTOS_MANTISBT_PROJECT_VERSION="7"
REDHAT_SUPPORT_PRODUCT="centos"
REDHAT_SUPPORT_PRODUCT_VERSION="7"

[root@localhost Downloads]# cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)
[root@localhost Downloads]#

Now I list the rpm that I want to install

[root@localhost Downloads]# ls -al /home/liveuser/Downloads/*.rpm
-rw-rw-r--. 1 liveuser liveuser 23178 Aug 30 00:56 /home/liveuser/Downloads/rpmfusion-free-release-25.noarch.rpm

-rw-rw-r--. 1 liveuser liveuser 20430 Aug 30 00:56 /home/liveuser/Downloads/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-26.noarch.rpm
[root@localhost Downloads]#

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

Is it really possible to install this rpm's?

NOTE: The rpm for CentOS is not compatible with Broadcom rpm

To get the wifi working on centos 7 using the BCM4360 you should build the wl-kmod package following the steps described on elrepo.org-wl-kmod .

To correctly build and load the wl you need to disable the secure boot or sign your kernel module.
