    Hi Knurhpt,

    Sorry for reopening this old thread, but I saw it has been done before, so...

    I also have trouble to get the Asus PCE-AC56 working.
    The system here (of my father-in-law) is on Leap 15.1

    I installed the bcm43xx firmware package, but should I do anything afterwards? If I try to enable wlan in Yast (network is managed through the wicked manager here), one of the items to fill in is the kernel module, but whatever I type in there is forgotten immediately.

    locate bcm gives

    Code:
    /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/pullin-bcm43xx-firmware.service
    /lib/firmware/brcm/bcm4329-fullmac-4.bin
    /lib/firmware/brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw
    /lib/firmware/brcm/bcm43xx_hdr-0.fw
    /usr/lib/systemd/system/pullin-bcm43xx-firmware.service
    /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware
    /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware_wrapper
    /usr/share/licenses/bcm43xx-firmware
    /usr/share/licenses/bcm43xx-firmware/LICENCE.broadcom_bcm43xx
    /usr/share/licenses/bcm43xx-firmware/LICENCE.cypress
    /usr/share/licenses/kernel-firmware/LICENCE.broadcom_bcm43xx
    lsmod | grep bcm gives

    Code:
    bcma                   61440  1 b43
    but I don't think that's the module we need.

    dmesg | grep wl gives nothing.

    Any idea what to do now

    Thanks in advance!

    You should have started a new thread as your problem is not with Tumbleweed.

    We have four Lenovo laptops (including this one) running Leap-15.1.

    hwinfo shows that they have:

    The Packman repository were added and the broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-default packages installed from there.
    Nothing else (apart from supplying the WiFi password) was required.

    I had overseen that this tread was for TW (which I use at my own place), sorry!

    But apart from that, thanks a lot!, the wifi networks are seen now. But I'm not there yet, and opened thread
