    Hi all,

    I just got this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Wir...069.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.18184c4d6yQjS2
    I bought this to replace the stock Wifi on Z370N Giga mainboard. Since I read somewhere this is a good option for OOB working on MacOS.

    I haven't received the mainboard yet, but would like to know the installation steps (physically), since I couldn't find any guide (preferably with pictures) about the replacement. Can someone help?

    Thank you.

    I saw on the net that there are two screws on the underside of the mother board and one on the metal cover which has to be removed to replace the card. Ill try this myself this weekend.

    Hey I followed this one: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/neilharts-q4-a-z170-project-for-os-x.173534/page-2
    And was able to change the card successfully.
    After the 3 screw and the metal cover. There's one more screw that holds the card with the module (mine was covered under the black tape, just rip it out).

    @Rajkhand: I have all working for me. Though I don't use the wifi (I don't have 5Ghz wifi (yet) and 2.4Ghz doesn't work well with bluetooth).

    I believe you should put your kexts into S/L/E. I used kext wizard.
    If doesn't work. You should probably upload your 'Problem report' file here so @RehabMan can help. I believe it's the most accurate way to report your problem.
