    Default Wifi not working on leap 42.3 BCM43142

    Hi,
    I have been using opensuse 42.3 on my machine but cannot get the wifi to work. I have been through many threads and didn't find the solution to fix this. Initially when I installed the OS the wifi worked by downloading broadcom wl from packman, but since I switched to development kernel I cannot get the wifi to work again.
    Here's some info that you may find useful

    We need to see the hardware (chipset) details...
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk|grep -iA3 '\[02'
    *This will report all network class devices and any driver loaded

    Default AW: Wifi not working on leap 42.3 BCM43142

    Is your System up to date?

    If yes, install broadcom-wl:
    Code:
    zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-default
    Insert the Module and restart yout Network or restart yout PC.

    PS:
    You should also delete this 42.2 Repo:

    @Sauerland: Don't forget that the OP mentioned that they are using a non-standard kernel.

    @Mangesh: Any reason for not using the default openSUSE Leap kernel?

    Thanks, I should read more carefully.

    @Mangesh
    What Kernel, how is it build?

    I'm student, studying GPOS and RTOS, for our academics we developed certain kernel modules and loaded them to system space. But at the first by making some changes using "make menuconfig" we build a new kernel and now we are working on the same.
    Hope I have answered to both of you, correct me if I'm wrong, I'm still a beginner to all this.
    Thank You.

    Maybe Firmware is missing:
    Code:
    journalctl -b | grep -Ei 'firm|broadc'
    Or install broadcom-wl:
    https://www.broadcom.com/support/dow...Infrastructure

    Must maybe patched to work with your secret Kernel.......

    If you install an newer kernel, you must maybe patch broadcom-wl.

    So what Version is your secret Kernel-Version?
    Code:
    uname -a
