I was playing with configuration files in Debian when after reboot I lost connection to my router.
My NetworkManager says 'no Networks'. When I try and restart the Networking service it hangs and comes back with no errors. It states "Restarting networking(via systemctl): networking.service" and returns 0 after entering in
echo $0 after that command.
sudo iwlist wlp3s0 scanning | grep "ESSID:" seems to be working fine outputting:
ESSID:"ASIO Survellance Van 3" ESSID :"BigPondD7990F" ESSID:"NETGEAR26"
and so forth...
/sbin/ifconfig returns an ipv6 address but no ipv4.

My external backup Alfa wireless card seems to not be showing in
I have tried pinging 126.96.36.199 but it states network unreachable.
cat /etc/network/interfaces outputs

Update: I have installed and loaded the necessary module for bcm4360 wireless interface with
modprobe wl but still the same results. Even doing a
modprobe -r wl && modprobe wl doesn't work either.
Update: I have done a
lsusb | grep "bcm4360" but my wireless nic isn't coming up.
Update: I have access to wired connection via my router with ethernet and usb tethering with my phone.
Update: Output of
sudo modprobe -r -v wl && sudo modprobe -v wl:

Please help! If there's anymore information needed please let me know. I'm sure I'm missing something essential.
