I can't see PCI-E Wireless card FENVI FV-HB1200

I can't see PCI-E Wireless card FENVI FV-HB1200 on Manjaro Cinnamon, but this card works on Hackintosh Mojave very well.
Maybe I need to install some drivers.

Please post:

Oh great broadcom again, surprise, surprise.

Install some of the newer kernels. You may need to install 5.2 to get full support for the wl driver.

Follow my guide here:

I forgot to say that I used only this part from your guide:

Installing the required Linux kernel headers:

To automatically install all required Linux headers packages for all installed kernels, use the following command:

sudo pacman -S $(pacman -Qsq "^linux" | grep "^linux[0-9]*[-rt]*$" | awk '{print $1"-headers"}' ORS=' ')

*command courtesy of @dalto

Once you have completed the linux-headers package installation, install the "dkms" package with the following command:

sudo pacman -S dkms 

After all those steps are complete unplug any tethering, LAN, or other internet connections and reboot.

After rebooting, your WiFi may be working with the native modules already included in the kernel. If you find the kernel driver works satisfactorily you may simply want to continue using it.

If your WiFi is not working (or the kernel driver performs poorly), then continue with the directions to install the proprietary broadcom-wl-dkms driver.

Perform some tests on your WiFi, and if it is not performing adequately proceed with installing the broadcom-wl-dkms driver. Reconnect to an alternate internet source to perform the driver installation.

Install the "broadcom-wl-dkms" driver package from the Manjaro extra repo with this command:

sudo pacman -S broadcom-wl-dkms

After the driver has finished installing, again unplug any tethering, LAN, or other internet connections and reboot.

and the card works very well now.
