Hello everyone, first time Manjaro user here. I really want to switch to it, but given the problems I had in the past with this horrible BCM43142 I just made a small test partition next to my usual Ubuntu partition.
When I try to connect to any wireless network with the auto-installed
broadcom-wl driver or with
broadcom-wl-dkms, either it tries to connect to the network several times asking for the password before giving up, or it straight up gives up after about 20 seconds stuck on Setting network address.
I tried a lot of the solutions I found here and on the Arch wiki, but none of them worked and none of them seemed to describe the exact problem I had, I even tried different kernels.
lspci -k output for the network controller:
