    You're currently impacted by this bug. The advice (workaround) I gave here should work for you too.

    So, if you unload and reload the b43 driver manually does that result in the wireless device node being present?
    Code:
    ip link
    Wifi not soft-blocked?
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/rfkill list

    Curiosity;
    Why don't you simply install broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-default from Packman?

    With Broadcom WLAN chips, I never bother to fight with b43 and go for Packman instead - works every time.

    Yes, that's probably the easiest way forward here.

    Aug 18 11:27:23 linux-d6rw.suse kernel: b43: probe of ssb0:0 failed with error -524
    Aug 18 11:27:23 linux-d6rw.suse kernel: Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PNLS ]
    I'm not sure about the significance of the errors, but this leads me to wonder if you have the prerequisite firmware installed?
    http://opensuse-guide.org/wlan.php

    16.2 Recent Broadcom Chipset
    The Linux kernel comes with the brcm80211 driver by default. This driver supports bcm4313, bcm43224, bcm43224, bcm43225, bcm4329, bcm4330, bcm4334, bcm43241, bcm43235 (>= rev 3), bcm43236 (>= rev 3), bcm43238 (>= rev 3), bcm43143, bcm43242.

    If you experience problems with the above driver, and you have one of the following chipsets: bcm4312, bcm4313, bcm4321, bcm4322, bcm43224, bcm43225, bcm43227, bcm43228, you may want to try installing the proprietary broadcom-wl driver (package: broadcom-wl) available in the Packman software repository.

    16.3 Older Broadcom Chipset
    If you have an older Broadcom chip supported by the, free, reverse-engineered b43 driver, i.e.: bcm4303, bcm4306, bcm4309, bcm4311, bcm4318, you only need to install the firmware. This is automated by simply running this command and rebooting afterwards (make sure the package b43-fwcutter is installed and that you are online while running the command):
