I noticed that with latest kernel (, my laptop’s Wifi doesn’t work, whereas with previous kernel
(, it works fine.

Is this a known issue or did I miss something new?

BTW, `lspci` says:
Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11bgn Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

  • On your previous kernel, I believe you built/installed kmod-wl by following this ELRepo article:

    I suggest you do the same with the latest version of the wl driver. As noted in that article, the kmod-wl binary packages built from the same SRPM for the latest EL point releases are now available from the nux-dextop repo.


  • Hello Akemi,

    Sorry for my (very) late reply, but for the sake of the archives I can confirm, rebuilding the kmod-wl RPM did the trick for a recent kernel update (ABI probably broken because of it). The mentioned URL still presents up-to-date information and is valid in order to address this issue.
