    Accepted Solution

    kmod-wl isn't a driver, it's a package that is depended on by various tools, and this package requires that at least one of the actual drivers is installed.
    This means only one package needs to be updated when references to wireless drivers change and not all packages need to be reinstalled because of changes dependency's

    So you actually need soething else for your wireless driver.
    What chipset is built-in?

    You can use lspci, lsusb for resp. PCI or USB based adapters.
