I just finished upgrading my netbook to Systemd, and to my dismay the wireless stopped working.
lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 reveals that I have a Broadcom BCM4312 LP-PHY rev01.
I believe I was using the Linux kernel driver before with no issues, but now I have tried loading brcmsmac and it's not working.
The kernel driver used to load automatically.
iwconfig shows nothing with a wireless extension, and ip link doesn't even show my wireless NIC. I don't see any issues in journalctl as far as I can tell.
B43 and SSB are blacklisted.
Has anyone else had this problem since upgrading? Any ideas?
I would prefer the linux driver vs broadcom-wl if it can be avoided.

Are your vendor ID:Product ID not 14e4:4315 ?? That device is supported by b43. I would not consider using anything but the b43 driver.
Regardless. be aware that your device probably changed names and may no longer be wlan0. Perhaps that is your real problem.
Were I you, I would reconfigure to again use b43, then check the output of ip link do find your device names.

Solved with a fresh install - I know it's not the ideal solution however I was moving from a fairly old version of arch to the latest version.
I guess even with non-Windows O/S sometimes this is the easiest / quickest option!
