No Wifi option in NetworkManager in kernel 6.1

Just notices that I have no option for Wifi in the NetworkManager widget in the taskbar in kernel 6.1.1-1
Using kernel 5.15.85-1 works as normal though.

inxi -Nn


  Device-1: Broadcom NetXtreme BCM57765 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe driver: tg3
  IF: enp2s0f0 state: up speed: 100 Mbps duplex: full mac: c8:2a:14:3a:bc:7f
  Device-2: Broadcom BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n driver: wl
  IF: wlp3s0 state: dormant mac: d2:a5:61:7d:fb:25

Any idea ?

I would start by checking your kernel and journal logs related to the wifi driver…

journalctl --boot=0

Maybe you used an AUR-driver, that needs to be compiled for your 6.1.1-1 kernel :thinking:

The troubleshooting section here may be of some help. If you have broadcom-wl installed you will need to reinstall it. If you have broadcom-wl-dkms installed it should have updated when you updated the kernel.

Thanks @jrichard326
I reinstalled broadcom-wl-dkms and that worked.
Not sure why it didn’t get updated with the kernel…
