Well if you read your own dmesg output, you can clearly see the wireless card is Intel, not Broadcom, and it's missing required firmware. Install it.

That's showing your ethernet card, not your wifi.

Firmware for your wifi should be in: sys-kernel/linux-firmware

I always thought "lspci -vnn | grep 14e4" should always give Wireless Network Adapter.
It works on my another laptop.

Now I know what should I do next. Thank you very much~

(By the way, say sorry for if which sentence what I said contain syntax error... Include this sentence)
