Manjaro doesn't detect wifi

i’m using the plasma environment and the rfkill list only says that Bluetooth isn’t blocked. i updated everything in the system update and tried the set up command and it didn’t seem to work

was the wifi working before update?

hardware info
inxi -Fazy
Why are you telling about bluetooth, when what you have trouble with is wifi?

no, i have been using tethering to update

i forgot the command for hardware info and assumed it was rfkill list

so post output from:
inxi -xN
mhwd-kernel -li

install the driver:
sudo mhwd -i pci network-broadcom-wl
or go to system settings/hardware configuration and click auto install proprietary drivers
then reboot and test
