Hi Ikhlesh,

You'll have to install the proprietary BROADCOM wireless drivers, but unfortunately, on RHEL 8 this is currently not possible.
Both repositories (ELRepo/RPM Fusion) that provide the drivers are not set up for being used with RHEL 8 at the moment. :)

ELRepo's wl-kmod is being worked on. :)

Ha ! That's what I've been waiting for - reply didn't take more than minutes ... didn't expect anything else, Akemi. :)

Christian

Hi Ikhlesh,

As you are a new member of our community, I want to let you know that the response from Akemi is great news for you.
Akemi and his fellow members from ELRepo don't just promise something, but rather they present solutions as soon as
possible - which means : we can expect the availability of BROADCOM wireless drivers for RHEL 8 in the near future. :)

Regards,
Christian
