During the installation process, all network card information and wifi connection can be obtained correctly. After the installation is completed and restarted, wifi does not start normally
I’ve found, on a minimal install, that after installation, you have to connect once through ethernet and install the NetworkManager-wifi package, After that, if I remember correctly, I had to do systemctl stop NetworkManager.service systemctl start NetworkManager.service. A simple systemctl restart NetworkManager.service didn’t work. (I may be remembering incorrectly, I may have had to restart the whole system).
Anyway, the key is installing NetworkManager-wifi. Even though it works during installation, it’s not installed if you choose minimal install.
Yes, I also found this problem. My notebook computer does not have RJ45 network port, so it cannot be minimized.
dnf list NetworkManager\*
the NetworkManager-wifi in in
baseos. It should therefore be in the Minimal image and hence install from USB should be an option.

The “Minimal Install” does not include group “Common NetworkManager submodules”. That is why NetworkManager-wifi is not installed initially.
@zuozhehao, you can usually find an inexpensive USB-to-ethernet dongle. I just use that on a yoga2, which has no ethernet port.
