Installing arch from usb drive, cannot find wifi interface


I've gotten the live system to launch but I'm having trouble getting connected to wifi. When I type "ip link" I get 2 device names listed, but I think they are wired devices. When I use them as interface name it just says "operation not supported." When I type "iw dev" nothing happens. I don't get an error message but it just goes back to the command line with no output. I'm trying to install on a dell latitude e6410. Any tips on how to get interface name so I can get wifi working for installation?

What does this produce ?. You'll get your wired as well
Code:
lspci -nnv | sed -nr "/Network|Ethernet/,/^$/p"

For the wireless it said "Broadcom BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 1)". I don't have access to wired at the moment

Ugh - I refuse to buy any machine with a Broadcom chip (or Realtek for that matter) in it. Bad karma over the years.
Arch has excellent doco - get used to looking at it. Start with this Broadcom article in the wiki. You might get lucky, the support is supposed to be better these days.
