I have a problem similar to this:
But in my case, loading the broadcom-wl-dkms driver did not work. I am new to this, so maybe the solution is quite simple (hopefully).
What I did so far:
I installed various drivers with yaourt and pacman, ending up with the broadcom-wl-dkms driver.
When I list the available internet devices with
ip link I still only get two results, the lo and the chipset of my motherboard (where the LAN´s plugged in and works just fine).
lsmod I thought I would get a list of all active drivers, but the broadcom-wl-dkms is not shown there.
What do I have to do in order to get the drivers all set up and running?
wifi-menu gives me returns in bright red INVALID INTERFACE SPECIFICATIONS but I'm guessing that's just because it can't see any wireless networking devices.
I read quite a lot of posts but nothing really helped so far (And yes, I checked the Arch Wiki beforehand). Does it have something to do with the driver being restrictively licensed drivers?

Fascinating: output of

lsmod | grep wl produces no result. How do I load the driver?
