Just a quick heads up, I've bought a number of Apple wifi cards and these apple to M.2 A/E slot adapters. Lately, I have been having issues. Some didn't do wifi, some didn't do bluetooth, the last one does nothing. They are all being installed on ASRock Z370 Gaming ITX motherboards (with thunderbolt) What I know for certain is changing the wifi/bt cards out never fixes anything. The most recent adapter that doesn't do anything is labeled as a "HUYUN BCM94360CS2 BCM943224PCIEBT2 BCM94331CD BCM94360CD Module Card to NGFF(M.2) Key A/E Adapter." A "Hobbypower BCM94360CS2/BCM943224PCIEBT2 Card To NGFF(M.2) Key A/E Adapter For Mac OS" version is coming in today. I will provide an update after the adapter card is replaced. Anyone else having problems like this?

@macs_forever Are you still facing the problem?
I'm planning to buy a used Apple card based on BCM943602CS to add native WiFi and Bluetooth support. But these cards are giving problem then I'll not purchase it.

It will work, but you have to make the proper USB SSDT. Watch for defective Apple cards. I had one that I wasted hours on until I finally realized one of the connectors was broken. I think most of these are used pulls, so they can have defects.
