On the live cd I used to install antergos, wireless worked out of box. After booting into the new install, I find that there is no option on my gnome DE to connect to wireless. My assumption is it should have worked at this stage.
After looking through several wiki articles and a few forum posts, I thought these command outputs might be useful for troubleshoot this. Please have a look at the outputs for ‘ip link’, ‘ip a’, ‘lspci -v’, ‘lsub’ here :
The wireless interface is not showing up on ‘ip a’. However lspci -v shows the correct device with 'Kernel modules: bcma’
After installation via livecd, somehow grub was not properly installed(apparently a known issue), so I had to boot into livecd again, chroot into my new install and install grub properly. At this time, I modified /etc/resolv.conf and executed
ip addr add 192.168.1.151/24 broadcast 192.168.1.255 dev eno1
Could those operations have caused this?
What more information should I provide here? What troubleshooting steps should I take? Am I wrong in assuming that wireless should have started working after installing gnome-de from antergos install? Especially since it worked in the livecd?
After reading through several posts, I suspect it might be relevant to add that I am dual booting with windows 8. Also, there is a hardware button (actually a fn+f12 combination) to turn wifi on-off. On gnome, pressing (fn+f12) toggles the airplane mode, but does not turn state of wifi light.

Apologies for poor code formatting, I’ll learn the correct syntax soon.
