On your previous kernel, I believe you built/installed kmod-wl by
following this ELRepo article:


I suggest you do the same with the latest version of the wl driver. As
noted in that article, the kmod-wl binary packages built from the same
SRPM for the latest EL point releases are now available from the
nux-dextop repo.
