The kernel is loading wl driver but does not use it due to tainting. I didn’t have to do any of the nonfree repositories like others are saying. Here’s a direct link to that comment: If you had, you would have seen that having SSB as a module did not make any difference.
Broadcom Wifi on Fedora 26 kernel : Fedora
As I said, wl should be the last resort, but that is the beauty of Linux. I just don’t want to be tied to the cord. The driver has certainly not been dropped. Use lspci -nn -d: I am not surprised that your macbook needed to use wl. Firstly, get an ethernet connection like with an internet cable or otherwise get an internet connection up and running via some other means other than using your WiFi as obviously it’s not working at the moment for you.
Comment 46 Justin M. Comment 51 Paul Lambert Barring that, it seems that maximum flexibility is achieved when SSB is built as a module.
Anyway, your patch made it unnecessary, but it had already been changed, and I didn’t see a redora to change it back at the time. Comment 47 Jeremy Cline The short story is to know your wifi hardware and blacklist the drivers that will NOT work. The firmware is not included in Linux because Broadcom has refused to allow redistribution of said firmware.
I fedoea this works. The only minor issue I had was that my install did not have wget installed. A community for users, developers and people interested in the Fedora Project and news and information about it.

Fedora Users Mailing list: So you can either wait for the update to come or try installing kernel 3. With Internet i can say fedorx is a problem for a lot of people. Comment 40 Larry Finger This is the software package that does the extraction of the firmware from the proprietary driver.
I appreciate the info. Have you checked to see if rfkill is blocking wifi? Comment 29 Giuseppe Catastini Very good instructions, everything worked well after the restart.
