I see this option to select brcm wifi driver not don't see ā”‚ Proprietary BCM43xx WiFi driver under kernel modules. Please let me know how to enable wlan in openwrt ?

The only driver for your hardware is brcmfmac, not wl.

I have already selected brcmfmac

Then you need to check the logs (dmesg) and make sure that everything is present (firmware, kernel modules; wl must not be installed).

@slh Thanks it worked. Same driver works for rpi4 as well ?

Should be the same.
