Hello.

After installing Gentoo and needed packages to be able to use WiFi, I cannot connect my computer, and I cannot figure out how to solve the problem.

My device is a Broadcom BCM4360. By other distros I know that the appropriate module is wl. But I’m stuck.

Code:
lspci -k

Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev03)
Subsystem: Apple Inc. BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter
Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge
Kernel modules: bcma, wl


wpa_supplicant, broadcom-sta and other packages are installed, and genkernel with necessary modules too.

I assume you followed Gentoo wireless wiki.
To get help you should describe better where you get stuck.

To be more accurate, I’m not able to turn on my internet connection or to set up the WiFi device.

Considering all the information you have provided I have to conclude something is wrong.

Ignatius881,

What does dmesg tell?
Put it all onto a pastbin site and post a link.
