Details

Description: My Dell XPS 15 can't browse the web, use hexchat (IRC), can't LAN transfer, can't ssh, etc. I tried downgrading the kernel, and that did not fox my issue, so I was prompted to upgrade back to 8-1 (using cached kernel downloads), and report here from #archlinux.


Additional info:

Pastebin of the issue: http://ix.io/qyE

Pastebin of latest journalctl -b: https://ptpb.pw/SB7A.log

(I didn't use pastebin as #archlinux doesn't like it and corrected me about using it.)

Steps to reproduce:

Use laptop with broadcom driver. See if wifi breaks on it. It probably will.

To no avail. I still cannot get firefox, or hexchat to work properly.

FYI, nobody cares about kernel bugs here. Nothing will happen.

I assume the situation will be the same, but does it work with the broadcom-wl-dkms package?
