Airdrop over ethernet without wifi card - Orico bta-403

Hello guys,


I really don't know if this is possible to work. I'm using BigSur 11.0.1.

I'm using a USB dongle (Orico BTA-403), it works great but the airdrop doesn't work.


My motherboard is a Z490 UD.

I've tried to do this in this order:


→ Reset Nvram Open Core
defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser DisableAirDrop -bool YES
defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser DisableAirDrop -bool NO
defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser BrowseAllInterfaces 1
→ Reset


The airdrop does not even appear in the Go menu of the Finder, if I have it opened by the spotlight I have the following error "The operation can’t be completed because the item can’t be found."



Is there any way to have the airdrop working in this scenario?




Air drop only works with low power wifi and bluetooth module 4.0+ and both Wifi and Bluetooth must be on. It doesn't matter what desktop or laptop you use, the only hand-off supported devices are: BCM94352,BCM94350, BCM94360 as I know.
