BCM943602CS combo card, Bluetooth not working

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I purchased a BCM943602CS Wi-Fi Bluetooth card off amazon.co.uk. I have Wi-Fi working but Bluetooth is not.

If I scan for devices, none are seen. I connected a Magic Mouse 2 via USB to setup. The OS says setup was successful, but after the USB cable is disconnected, I can't connect to the mouse from the Bluetooth menu. How can I confirm it is using Bluetooth on the PCI card? These were the same issues as using Bluetooth on the ASUS Maximus VIII Formula motherboard, which is why I purchased the card.

The machine is dual boot, both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth work fine in Windows 8.1 Pro with the magic mouse 2 successfully setup.

Does anyone have any trouble shooting tips?

Cheers, Paul

check folder

u need only it

attachicon.gifCLOVER.zip

dont use kexts in s/l/e, etc, use Clover folder in UEFI mode

Check, if dont work back here

 

I tried using the attached Clover folder, but the machine reboots due to a kernal panic. A video of the boot in verbose mode is uploaded in the box.com folder noted above.

 

I am running 10.11.6, I notice all the kexts are in 10.12 folder, I tried renaming this to 10.11, makes no difference.

 

Can you clarify what you mean 'use Clover folder in UEFI mode'. I machine is UEFI based.

 

Cheers, Paul

It booted after replacing the DSDT however, it still has the original problem: The mouse pairs via USB, but does not work. Can't see any other BT devices.

just put kexts

reboot

try it

I tried this as well as using the Kext Utility to add them to the Extensions folder. Both times the same result.

 

Thanks for all your suggestions thus far, any other ideas?

Use DSDT above  DSDT.02 and add two kexts in Clover/Kexts.10.xx

Remove all kexts about bluetooth inside ur clover folder

Post Ioreg, extract with Ioreg Explorer

 

 

I finally got bluetooth working.

 

Turns out none of the extensions were needed... I turned off the motherboard bluetooth controller in the UEFI and viola it works!!!

I have same Wifi BT card, and a Gigabyte AORUS Z370 Gaming WIFI motherboard rev.1. I have your exact problem but I can not find the option.

I am having same issue on my setup. @MaLd0n will your process above work for other Broadcom cards? Using a slightly different card BROADCOM BCM94352Z. 

Is there somewhere that I can read up on why it is better to put .kext files in the /others folder instead of /library/extensions like some guides say? I know that Morgonaut has said on her beginners guide that it is better to keep everything Apple Only in the /library/extensions folder but seems like many do not necessarily agree.

      I've got an Asus Z390 ROG Strix Gaming i motherboard working perfectly on Catalina 10.15.4 with OpenCore 5.7. The only issue is trying to use a DW1560 wireless/ bluetooth card following the documented process of adding the four kexts. Its a supported chipset but needs to kexts to function both in Clover or OpenCore.
      Kext
      Use
      BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext
      Use when firmware loading is not required.
      BrcmPatchRAM.kext
      Loads firmware into the bluetooth device and activates it. For macOS 10.10 or earlier.
      BrcmPatchRAM2.kext
      Loads firmware into the bluetooth device and activates it. For macOS 10.10-10.14.
      BrcmPatchRAM3.kext
      Loads firmware into the bluetooth device and activates it. For macOS 10.15.
      BrcmFirmwareData.kext
      Provides firmware to BrcmPatchRAM2.
       
      The first kext to load after the primary ones is supposed to be BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext but that causes a failure to boot. I think the error message says the kext can't be found but its properly called out in the config.plist and it's sitting in the kexts folder. I changed wireless cards for one that is natively supported but it still is a head scratcher. Any help would be appreciated.

      As shown in the image below, bluetooth works fine. However, it can't detect my wireless bluetooth earphones. These same earphones are easily detectable through Windows 10 on my machine. What could be the problem? I'm currently on 10.15.3 - Catalina. Using BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext BrcmFirmwareData.kext BrcmPatchRAM3.kext

      Hi,

      I will be using ASUS ROG STRIX B360-I GAMING (mini-ITX) for my new build, and I'm trying to figure out the best solution for WiFi & Bluetooth. I understand that it should be possible to replace the WiFi/BT card that comes with the motherboard, but I'm confused about with what kind of card exactly. What connector will I need to be using? There are cards with miniPCI, M.2, some solutions require adapters, ...

      Is there a card I can simply swap in?

      Thank you
