Fedora no Wireless Extensions and No Server Found on firefox


I am new to Linux and use Fedora

1) When I run the following codes:
ifconfig enp0s3 down
iwconfig enp0s3 mode monitor

I get: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06):
SET failed on device enp0s3 ; Operation not supported.

2) When I run: iwconfig I get:
enp0s3 no wireless extensions
lo no wireless extensions

3) When I run Firefox, I get Server Not Found. How can I get the internet running?

Any help will the 3 Errors will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

what do you want to achieve?

what you are describing sounds like pentesting instructions, yet in the end you mention a simple browser network error?

just getting internet up on a gui distro should not require anything of what you posted there.

Yes Ondoho you are right it is for Pen testing..

I think the main problem I'm having is with the Wireless Extensions.

I tried using the Browser(Firefox) on Fedora to download. That's when I got the Server not found.
It's why I put it on here.

It does not show a wirelesss device only your ethernet card "enp0s3" not a wirless net card.
Did you think you had a wireless card. If you did what one is it.
if usb type lsusb .
or
lspci
could be
lshw

do it as sudo or root.

The wireless adapter might be disabled in the BIOS setup.
