@onmybikedrunk - How did you get the antenna connectors to stay attached. On my BCM94360CS2, the antenna connectors just pop off - they do not "snap" like usual. I thought maybe I had a bad cable kit from amazon, but I ordered a second one from a different vender and it's the same thing.

If you ordered antennas/cables and they do fit properly, can you point me to what you purchased?

My (hopefully temporary) solution was a hot glue gun...

Dudes! I'm glad everyone is finding how great this works! Any questions please don't hesitate to ask. I'll be around more often, promise
You care to give me an opinion. I have Z170i Gaming Pro Motherboard and I wanna install BT/WIFI model BCM94360CS2 or the newer BCM943602CS antenna (3 prot). Will these wifi modules work? Will i need a special adapter or cable? @

Thanks guys.

You can use either BCM94360CS or BCM943602CS but when you using BCM94360CS make sure that the M.2 adapter is compatible or else use any PCIe adapter. These two cards will work out of the box, only you have to do is check the compatibility of adapter that u using.

I am keen on using the BCM943602CS but it has 3 antennas. My board only has 2. Doe i have to connect antenna writes to all the to get signals or can i connect only two wires?

Does anyone know what m.2 slot the BCM943602CS use?

Then BCM94360CS2 and the M.2 adapter is best for you.

Just as a general best practice, ALWAYS use the search function and check at least the sticky threads before posting.
Also please try to avoid posting off topic.

As for your question, check this:

(second entry)

...or just buy this one, it works OOB, also in BIOS/UEFI and Clover boot screen. Keep in mind that you need an USB2 motherboard header for the BT to work.

So I just had to do a quick write-up on this because I've hardly seen it mentioned in the networking/WiFi threads...
........
Sorry for the wordiness, I just get excited about this stuff! I hate when my Hack doesn't work like it should and in the specific WiFi/BT area of Hackintoshing, it's simple, nothing beats the real thing.

Thank you very much for sharing this! I can also get excited about this.
