[SOLVED] Wireless broadcom is visible in PCI but not in iwconfig

Hello

I installed arch on my laptop and after some days I wanted to finally use wifi.
I installed b43 because bcma doesn't support by chip and after several tries like modprobing, reinstalling, blacklisting bcma etc. literally every solution I was able to find : No effect at all;
iwconfig only shows loop and ethernet device. I also tried to boot without lan cable plugged and nope.
What would solve that?

Cheers!

Have you worked your way through the Wireless page?

Post any errors you encounter.

Weird is that I didn't encount any error thru all way described in page you posted.
Anything set up and working, modules etc. and just no interface.

Post the output of:
`rfkill list all`
`ip l`
`iw dev`

Btw, you should use iw and not iwconfig.

I've a sneaky feeling you haven't yet installed the firmware.  Just a hunch.

Thanks! Reinstalling b43-firmware helped and then I was able to start NetworkManager and woah - it works!
Thanks again! smile
