Fedora 35: Enable WiFi

I replaced wifi antenna cables on my Framework Laptopo as I broke those. I followed the Antena Replacement Guide. Fortunately it was succeeded. Now the Wifi works on Fedora 35 on my Framework Laptop.

After replacing the Wifi cables, the Wifi was not enabled. So, here is the log to enable Wifi.

I referred this page: Howto enable WIFI? - Ask Fedora.

$ nmcli connection show
