BCM943224PCIEBT2 (MacBook Air) on M.2 NGFF adapter

Just want to let you know guys that it's obviously working but WIFI part needed AirportBrcmFixup.kext otherwise card wasn't recognised, Bluetooth part worked OTB.

The seller swore that card is genuine.

Adapter works with BCM94360CS2 and BCM943224PCIEBT2 but I had to use the latter as I have extremely small case.

It would seem you forgot that that Broadcom BCM43224 is subject of a whitelist within OS X/macOS. As such, you may need to adjust SMBIOS, patch the supporting kexts or, indeed, call on AirportBrcmFixup to use that card properly.

I have BCM43224 on my Dell laptop. It works like a charm in 5GHz.

I have to set Board-ID=Mac-2E6FAB96566FE58C

and some properties for the device

Lilu is not needed.

Thanks guys for clearing that up for me. I was not aware of a whitelist. I’m grateful for AirportBrcmFixup kext. I don’t want to change SMBios as Mac mini is best suited for my setup. This little card has a really strong signal both Bluetooth and WiFi.
