I’m trying to install Antergos on my mid-2012 MacBook Pro and the live-boot USB is not detecting my wirelesscard. This wouldn’t be a problem except that I do not currently have wired network access. I tried to tether to my iPhone 7 using bluetooth and USB but Bluetooth does not want to enable, and USB isn’t detecting at all.
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
Arch Wiki said to use lspci -k to find the adapter, so it gives me
[[email protected] ~]$ lspci -k 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n (rev02) Subsystem: Apple Inc. AirPort Extreme Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge Kernel modules: bcma, wl
So it seems that it has kernel drivers but under System Settings >> Wi-Fi it is saying, “No Wi-Fi Adapter Found”
As per this post I’ve tried
sudo modprobe -r tg3 sudo modprobe broadcom sudo modprobe tg3
Unfortunately this produced no change.
Another forum post lead to to using ip link, which shows shows loopback and:
4: enp2s0f0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisk mq state DOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 link/ether a8:20:66:2b:3e:09 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
sudo ip link set enp2s0f0 up
But that produced no change. I suspect that’s my wired network adapter.
I’m still very much a Linux noob and totally out of ideas at this point, beyond waiting until I can access a wired connection. I’d still like to solve this just for my own satisfaction!
Thanks for the help!
