    Wifi networks not detected

    Hello everybody. I have a Dell XPS13 with a broadcom wifi card. Right out of the box, the card was not recognized and I could not see the wifi entry in Network Manager; then I installed broadcom-STA and akmod and after that everything was fine, I've had no problems at all for several months. All of a sudden Network Manager stopped detecting networks. I can see the WiFi option in Network Manager, but when I hit on "Select network" it opens the windows, starts searching and hangs there forever without finding any. I am using kernel 4.16.12-300, but the problems is not solved booting with an older kernel. Any suggestion?

    you will need to download the latest ".hcd" file from that brcm link in github, and place it into the /lib/firmware/brcm/ folder. then reboot.

    I downloaded the file but when I turned the laptop on the network was detected. I don't know what's happened, is there a way to traceback the error? I'll save your suggestion in case the problem pops up again. Thanks for your help!
