I have installed Manjaro KDE Plasma on a 2008 iMac 8,1. I am currently using an ethernet connection for internet access but would like to have wifi as well. The wireless card is a Broadcom BCM4321. Hardware Configuration shows that the network-broadcom-wl driver is installed. However, the wifi system tray icon does not show up and the Network Connections in system settings does not show a wireless connection. I need support on enabling the wifi. Thanks.
Coud you try:
- Disabling/uninstalling the
network-broadcom-wl(from the Hardware Configuration Menu)
broadcom-wl-dkmspackage and reboot (note that this driver is not open-source)
I removed the -wl driver and installed the -wl-dkms driver but there was no change. I still have no wireless connection showing up. Any other ideas? Thanks

The wireless network selection tool does not appear anywhere. I see in network connections a random wired connection labeled Io but that’s it.
I had the same issue, when running kernel 5.15.102-1 with linux-firmware 20230210.bf4115c-1.
I solved it by updating the kernel to last version Linux 6.2.7-2, using the Manjaro settings manager.
