I'm having the same problem, however the solution above is not working. Upon checking the log file I see this
Quote:
ieee80211 phy0: rt2800pci_set_device_state: Error - Device failed to enter state 4 (-5)
I don't think that is some NetworkManager issue.

Upon running /sbin/lspci -nnk|grep '\[02' -A3 here's the result:
Quote:
01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Ralink corp. RT3290 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe [1814:3290]
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Ralink RT3290LE 802.11bgn 1x1 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Adapter [103c:18ec]
Kernel driver in use: rt2800pci
Kernel modules: rt2800pci

Kernel driver in use: r8169

Kindly enlighten me with meaning of the log message.

The wifi was working after fresh install of fedora 25, it stop working after dnf update and then reboot. Please help, thanks in advance!

Hmmm...related to a possible kernel update perhaps? Does completely shutting down the laptop help with this?

I can only speculate that only power-cycling clears registers (in the wireless device) and allows the updated driver to reinitialise, reload firmware, and interact with the hardware properly. Anyway, glad to have been of help.
