Linux Driver Help Luka emailed firstname.lastname@example.org, "I installed Fedora 24 on my new PC and everything works except the BCM4352 WiFi card from Asus. I tried Ubuntu 16.04, but the computer bricked and hanged when I tried to install proprietary drivers. I tried compiling the driver myself on Fedora, but that didn't work out too well, every time I update the kernel I have to compile it again, if I even manage to compile it." Should Luka buy a new Wi-Fi card?
