    Hi,

    couple of weeks ago I installed El capitan on Asus Z170-WS with Gmyle BT dongle. For wifi I used T9E Archer, worked OOB, no issues. I had problems with the dongle, installing BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmBluetoothinjector.kext fixed it. Strange because it should work OOB...

    In the meantime I changed board to Asus z170 VIII Formula. I did not install it again (I was afraid because the board has no USB 2.0 port), just installed my SSD and I could boot without any issues. Interestingly the my magic mouse worked but magic keyboard I had to re-pair after a reboot. Deleting bluetooth.plist fixed it. Not to bad but Handoff isn`t working and it is not possible to disable BT. Any chance to fix this?

    And is it possible to get the wifi working (the Atheros gives a much stronger 5Ghz signal than the archer)?

    Thanks
