    Hi
    Since the module is not in use, rebuild the initrd as root user with the command;
    Code:
    mkinitrd
    lspci -nnk |grep -A3 Network
    systemctl reboot
    In the lspci output you should see wl present.

    Wrong Packman Repo, this is for Leap 42.1, but you have 42.3 installed.
    see the URL above....

    And the brodcom-wl is because of that not for the 42.3 Kernel build, it is build for 42.1 Kernel.
