You'll need to post the relevant lines from the output from the lspci -nn or lsusb commands for anyone to be able to help.

bash: /home/hirailyas/rpmbuild/SOURCES/: Is a directory

and in step 5

[hirailyas@hirailyas ~]$ rpmbuild --rebuild --define 'packager hirailyas' /home/hirailyas/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/wl-kmod-6_30_223_271-5.el7.elrepo.nosrc.rpm
error: cannot open /home/hirailyas/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/wl-kmod-6_30_223_271-5.el7.elrepo.nosrc.rpm: No such file or directory

The text of step 4 in http://elrepo.org/tiki/wl-kmod suffers from shorthand notation.

Try to read it as follows:
- Go to http://elrepo.org/tiki/wl-kmod and download from that web page the driver for your platform: Linux® STA 64-bit driver.
- Copy the downloaded file to the directory ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES/
- Then continue with step 5.

Check you file name. It is ending in .rpm, not .r as in the command you are trying.
