I have a Mcbook Pro, I believe a 2017 model, has the touchbar, and I cannot get the wifi to connect and the sound does not seem to work. I see networks and I see that the hardware has a driver loaded and shows up in pulse audio, but I am having no luck with it. The strange thing is that at some point during testing some Arch based distros I had working WiFi, but now that I have settled, it just will not connect to any. I have looked into the various Broadcom driver, but the brcmfmac is the only one that really loads at all, and the sound would be less of an issue, except that the bluetooth on the SoC is pretty jank as well. I can use it, but audio really only works on A2DP Sync so the mic is too choppy to use and the sound is laggy and muddy. I am pretty well experienced with Linux and generally have no issues getting stuff working, especially these days, but this one is stumping me.
The system information is as follows:
