Build Identifier: 

since upgrade to kernel 4.2.6-301.fc23x86_64 my wifi isn't working anymore.
If I choose previous one (kernel-4.2.6-300.fc23.x86_64) in grub, it is functionnal.
I have broadcom-wl installed

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot with 4.2.6-301.fc23x86 kernel

Actual Results:  
$ iwconfig
enp0s25   no wireless extensions.
lo        no wireless extensions.

Expected Results:  
(will be completed in a few minutes after reboot)

Expected results : 
(after having rebooted and chose 4.2.6-300.fc23.x86_64 kernel with grub)

$ iwconfig
enp0s25   no wireless extensions.

          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated

          Power Management:off
lo        no wireless extensions.

please note : 
- I'm a noob in submitting bug reports, so feel free to ask any other command results
- English isn't my native language, please excuse in advance if some my sentences aren't clear

I noticed that the wireless button/indicator is orange with ...301 kernel (meaning wifi turned off under MS windows) and white with ...300 kernel (meaning wifi turned on)

Also, that wifi on/off button is not functionnal with fedora : it's led color does indicate properly wether wifi is on or off, but pressing the button doesn't change the card's state/power

Fedora does not provide or support proprietary modules.  You will need to take this up with whomever you got the kmod-wl driver from.
Comment 3 Ned 2015-12-04 04:22:03 EST
updates that came this morning seem to have fixed the problem :

- kernel-devel-4.2.6-301.fc23.x86_64
- kernel-modules-extra-4.2.6-301.fc23.x86_64

Therefor I close that bug report
