Bcm4352 detected but no wifi working with live image

Try this : inxi -fxzc0 or inxi -Fxzc0 Not sure which one.

Sorry capital F

Ok this time something happened?
This came up in the terminal:

3 cards huh? 2 separate ethernet ones ? Interesting - does that seem right to you ?

As to wifi - I’m not sure that driver is the right one for your bcm … have you looked in Manjaro Settings Manager to see if another is available ? maybe broadcom-wl ?
You may also want to try a different kernel … atleast one previous poster had problems with this card one kernels 4.0+

He’s on the live boot he said. So, then he can’t switch kernels until he installs. Ya I know I did a double take with the dual NIC cards and WiFi.

What’s up with that driver @cscs?

Try this command:

sudo modprobe broadcom-wl

That definitely does not look right.

Oh right. Well - I still think its just the wrong broadcom driver being applied when they need something else. If its a usb with enough space, they could maybe try installing something else, otherwise its system install, and try after.
Also, of course, architect is available so this can be done from the groundup instead of fighting against a bad presumption.

@tbg I dont know much about that driver - though I find references for its use for wireless - especially in some dell laptops. But sparse grabbings.
Oo, I took too long, now you’ve got some other suggestions. Yes - I think the track is to replace that driver with something else (that works)
On an installed system I might try blacklisting modules:

blacklist b43
blacklist bcma
blacklist brcmsmac
blacklist ssb

Or something similar

Maybe in live environment (still using modprobe :wink:)
sudo modprobe -r bcma
That would remove it … but I still think we can grab the proper one from mhwd/manjaro settings manager

[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ sudo modprobe broadcom-wl
modprobe: FATAL: Module broadcom-wl not found in directory /lib/modules/4.14.34-1-MANJARO

[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ sudo modprobe -r bcma
modprobe: FATAL: Module bcma is in use.

Okey doke - what does mhwd -l say ?

i was assuming that driver would be in the kernel , perhaps you need to install it.

Sorry, you need to unload the wrong drivers first.

sudo modprobe -r bcma

just noticed you posted this cscs

Then

sudo modprobe broadcom-wl

[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ sudo modprobe -r bcma
modprobe: FATAL: Module bcma is in use.
