I jut being curious...

But off topic.

Welcome to linux.org @kamusis

If the OP chooses to answer you he can, but he has not been seen for 5 months.

I am marking this Thread solved.

Dam it, being Loosely based on Ubuntu I hoped it would work, you were connected by wire to the router/internet I hope!
If so, let's make one last try this afternoon..
make sure you are connected to the internet, then try
sudo apt update and enter then when that's done
sudo apt install bcmwl-kernel-source and enter then when that has done
sudo modprobe wl and enter now when that's finished
RE-boot

edit, note the get has gone from the instructions as I dont think its needed with Pop
Just wanted to check in, these instructions worked today on a Late 2013 MacBook Pro 15" with a Broadcom BCM4360, Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS fully patched. Wifi didn't work on the bare install, but I shared my phone's internet via USB to patch, install inxi, and work through your advice. Thanks!
