Your card is blacklisted

You have to run sudo modprobe brcmfmac because it is blacklisted. You can tell this when you ran the command:

$ sudo grep brcmfmac /etc/modprobe.d/*
etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-custom.conf:blacklist brcmfmac

In order to β€œwhitelist” your card you need to use sudo powers to edit etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-custom.conf. Then:

Now when you reboot you shouldn’t have to type sudo modprobe brcmfmac anymore.

Please note there is a reason your card was blacklisted in the first place and if you have additional problems you might have to download source for a different driver and compile it using DKMS.
