How do I get my bcm4360 to work?

Some 4360 revisions have no working Linux driver. Thanks to Broadcom.

I dont even know what Broadcom is...

Does the network-broadcom-wl work?
Or even sudo pacman -S broadcom-wl-dkms?

Or either have a chance? :rofl:

Try it. If it doesn't work you can remove it.

Reboot. Just for giggles.

DKMS driver needs linux-headers

I think the order of commands was wrong. (By the way don't enter the "$".)

After installing the headers you need the depmod command and reboot. Afterwards, install the drivers. Otherwise you get the install errors as experienced (broadcom-wl was not installed).
