I have a working kernel up on my macbook which has a bcm4321 in it. I have enabled broadcom in the kernel and have installed the b43-firmware yet when I ifconfig -a it only shows enp3s0, lo and sit0. If i boot off of a gentoo liveCD then I do see wlan0 so it does work, its just that my kernel or system does not see it. Any suggestions, lads?

Please put your dmesg onto a pastebin site. Its too big to fit a post.

So I disabled all unnecessary wifi options and made sure the ones I needed were loaded as modules. Then reinstalled the wifi driver and it worked.
