• Wireless problems

    Hi everyone,
    I have the ASUS PCE-AC68 wlan card.
    I follow this website https://wikidevi.com/wiki/ASUS_PCE-AC68 and I tried ton install broadcom-wl/broadcom-wl-dkms, but it doesn’t work…
    By doing ip link show, I find the LOOPBACK and my ethernet card. But I want to connect my computer with Wi-Fi.

    Any solutions ?

    Thanks for your help !

    To be honest, your English sounds great! I would have never guessed it wasn’t your native language.

    Any solutions ?

    I’m not the most experienced user around, but perhaps this video might help? (it’s custom made for Antergos, so the instructions should be spot on).

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    i would say that this adapters, needs a firmware to work… sudo pacman -S b43-firmware

  • Hi @Keegan & @joekamprad ,
    First, thank you for your help.
    I tried to install broadcom-wl and b43-firmware, but no way to connect to a WiFi network.

    I’m using xfce I don’t know if I do something wrong, or if I forgot something…

    I read some thread about that, but I found no solution :/

    So, any other idea ?

    Sorry and thank you for your help ;)

    Sadly, I’m not actually that experienced in this field😞 so I do not know if I can really help you further. I had just hoped that perhaps the link I posted might have your answer. If it does not, then I’m out of ideas.

  • @Keegan Hey ! Sorry, I forgot to said that the video tell that you need to install the packages I wrot in my last post. So unfortunaly the problem is not solved with the video.

    Thanks anyway

    😞.I don’t know what to say then…

    Sorry, and good luck! May your problem be resolved shortly.

  • @aurele do you try to get wifi aviable with any other adapter?
    May you do not have the full setup for wifi, if you say that it does not show up in settings, may you need some stuff installed first:

    check driver status:

    lspci -k

    check if firware is loaded:

    dmesg | grep firmware

    check packages:

     pacman -S wireless_tools wpa_supplicant networkmanager network-manager-applet
  • Hi @joekamprad,
    Yes, i try with other older adapter but maybe 8 month ago, and it wasn’t working…

    My antergos installation is 1 week old. The card I use is working on Windows 10.

    lspci -k

    I have this line

    07:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)
    	Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter
    	Kernel modules: bcma

    The response of

    dmesg | grep firmware

    is empty

    And the package you say is alredy installed.

    I think the driver is correctyl installed, but the problem is the “virtual wireless card” because if I list the cards (ip link show) I only have lo who is the loopback, and enp3s0 who is my ethernet card.

  • dmesg | grep bcma

    may this will give you a interface name:

    iw dev

    otherwise we can not try to get it up …

  • @joekamprad said in Wireless problems:

    No response on the commands

    Unfortunaly, no return of the commands

  • @aurele said in Wireless problems:

    Kernel modules: bcma

    this should be wl as we where sure it is the right driver…

    Device with broadcom-wl driver not working/showing
    Be sure the correct modules are blacklisted and occasionally it may be necessary to blacklist the brcm80211 drivers if accidentally detected before the wl driver is loaded. Furthermore, update the modules dependencies depmod -a, verify the wireless interface with ip addr


    you can try vlacklisting this module on bootup to test if it change something by using this kernel parameter:


    simple press"e" on the boot menu and add this right after quiet
