Hi,

I have some trouble on making the wifi connection work on my Macbook Pro 11,1. It seems that the kernel can correctly recognize the driver. Below is the output of lspci.

Code:
# lspci -v
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)
        Subsystem: Apple Inc. BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18
        Memory at b0600000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=32K]
        Memory at b0400000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2M]
        Capabilities: [48] Power Management version 3
        Capabilities: [58] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
        Capabilities: [68] Vendor Specific Information: Len=44 <?>
        Capabilities: [ac] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
        Kernel driver in use: wl
        Kernel modules: wl


But unfortunately, ifconfig and iwconfig can't find any wireless interface:
Code:
# iwconfig
sit0      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

ens9      no wireless extensions.



Here is my kernel .config

Hi zasdfgbnm
unfortunately your Broadcom BCM4360 card is not supported by open drivers (http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43/#Supported_devices), you may check if the proprietary "net-wireless/broadcom-sta" driver works for you

Regards

Not sure if it's the same model, but I had to install the b43 firmware on my macbook with Debian8. Do some googling around "b43", "fw-cutter", etc. See if that gets you where you need to be.
