[SOLVED] BCM43241 wireless card seems to not exist.
Here's my lspci and lsusb output:

Any thoughts on why the device doesn't show up? Is there any other output I can provide?

trusktr wrote:@paperwastage. I'm not sure how to tell if connects through SDIO, but yeah, based on that link you posted seems like it does. But when I do dmesg | grep brcm is shows aboslutely nothing. There's no trace of my card anywhere. It just seems like Arch has no clue that the card exits (let alone that it's a wireless card). Does yours at least show up with lshw or lspci?
nope, mine doesn't show up via lshw/lspci/lsusb, probably because it's not connected to the pci / usb bus (probably connected directly to SoC)
maybe your kernel doesn't have brcmfmac loaded. try this in root
modprobe -r brcmfmac
note down the logs that should print on screen (and in dmesg)
also, go to windows, use some application to read your system (I've used http://rh-software.com/)
it showed my Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SD Adapter mounted on "SD\VID_.....", which is the SDIO port
