Loss of wifi

listed as f22 alpha FE

source: The"... core of NetworkManager smaller and more flexible by splitting out Wi-Fi support into the NetworkManager-wifi package. If you don’t have or don’t use Wi-Fi on your system, you don’t need to install stuff for it and you can save some disk space and RAM. If you suddenly find yourself without Wi-Fi, find a wired network connection and:"

dnf install NetworkManager-wifi
systemctl restart NetworkManager

      YUM  executable is now powered by DNF.  If you are sure you really want
