BCM43142 in Fedora 24 not working

Hello,

I've recently upgraded from Fedora 22 to 24 and my wireless is no longer working. Running "modprobe wl", I get the message "modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory ....." and when I run "akmods --force --kernel `uname -r` --akmod wl", it checks the packages but doesn't build one for wl.

I'm running the kernel-4.6.5-300.fc24.x86_64 and the wireless does work in kernel-4.4.14-200.fc22.x86_64.

Is there anything else I can try?

Thanks!

Yep, doesn't do anything. Checks for kmods but doesn't see anything amiss, and no module found by modprobe.
