Done!

In the end I did end up with the Dell DW1820A (CN-0VW3T3) and got it working.

I explained how here:

Hi there...
I have the same BCM94350ZAE card and I got it working before... but the main problem I have with this card is that it causes my system to crash/freeze/kernel panic many times before it successfully boots up...
I'm on Mojave & I'm using the older Yosemite IO80211Family.kext...

Do you have the same freeze/kernel panic issue?! Did you succeed to get it to work without random system crashes?
I would appreciate if anyone can help... thanks.

@mr.abdolian : see what happens when you add these boot arguments in Clover Configurator/ Boot:
Code:
bpr_initialdelay=400
bpr_postresetdelay=400
bpr_probedelay=200
-brcmfxwowl
save, reboot.

If that did not help and you are using the kexts from RehabMan, keep those args but replace your existing BrcmFirmwareRepo and BrcmPatchRAM2 kexts in /Library/Extensions with the ones from acidanthera: https://github.com/acidanthera/BrcmPatchRAM/releases (or vice versa if you are already using acidanthera's kexts).

Reboot.

If that did not help then you can try my compile of tluck's older fork (attached).
