m.2 DW1707/AR9565 shows yellow wifi indicator in network applet when turned on in 10.13.6, 10.14.6 and yellow ethernet in 10.15.2.
Icon in desktop panel indicates looking but not find networks in all three. Same wifi card detects available networks in linux without issue.
The attached kext is labeled particularly for 10.13.6, but wifi is not being detected even in that version. In all cases Atheros 40 kext is installed S/L/E as plugin in 80211 family kext with reparied permissions.
Can anyone who has this working in sierra, high sierra, mojave or catalina please post what you did including any dsdt/config.plist mods?
From what I have read in these forums the modded atheros 40 kext is supposed to work. Is this failure to detect networks specific to any particular brand(s) of laptops?
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, ...
Updated to Catalina, and also have a new Apple Watch. Upgrade from Mojave went great, only updated some kexts for the Wifi/bluetooth to make bluetooth work.Airdrop, Handoff etc. all work like a charm. Sidecar is also enabled (but I don't have the iPad, so can't test).
However, the Apple Watch features are not there. I've went to System Report, and noticed in my Wifi that "Auto Unlock: True" isn't there at all. How come? I've read some success stories with my Wifi/BT chip, which is:
Broadcom BCM94352Z NGFF Dual Band 802.11ac 867M Wifi BT 4.0 Lenovo FRU 04X6020
I'm using these kexts from Headkaza, which were needed to get Bluetooth to work:
Wifi is working great, 5GHZ, full speed. So I'm pretty lost on how to get this "Auto Unlock: True" enabled.
Extra info about my system:
Processor: Intel Core i5 8400
Videocard: Radeon RX 570 4GB
Motherboard: ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac
Replaced my Intel wifi chip with the BCM94352Z
SMBIOS: Retina 5K 27" 2017
Hello, I am posting this show how I adapted the BCM94360CS2 M2 NGFF board on my Lenovo L440.
I have some guides about this notebook over here and previously used Dell DW1560 (BCM94325Z).
The DW1560 worked almost perfectly Handoff, Continuity, Universal Clipboard and AirDrop with the kexts: AirportBrmFixup.kext, BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM3.kext and BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext, but the Instant Hotspot doesn't work.
So, I decided to grab a M2 NGFF adaptor (because this notebook only have mPCIe) and the BCM94360CS2 and put inside this notebook:
Previously with DW1560
Moved the battery and removed DW1560
Obviously don't fit
Need to cut this piece of plastic and remove the CMOS battery conector
Maybe I removed too much plastic (hehe) and soldered the battery wires directly in motherboard
Now the adapter fits
Instant hotspot now working without any Kexts, yeah!
Important! Just remember: this notebook have whitelist in BIOS/UEFI that need to be patched to allow other wireless cards.
