Hi everyone! hope you're all doing great. I managed to install Catalina in my pc, and everything works just fine after a few DSDT patches. The only thing that is not working is my wifi. I have a Broadcom 4322AG. I've seen some kexts around for it, but they are all for El Capitan and Mavericks. Saw some not that clear info for Sierra. My question here is, is it possible to make it work? I know there are some 2009 MBPs with my same wifi card, but of course those are not supposed to get Catalina. Does it only work in those systems then?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Have a nice one!

You motherboard has a proprietary Intel wifi connection. Physically it is the same M.2 but electronically it is not. So the card you got will not work in that slot. Only CNVi devices will work in that slot. You are left with PCI-E x16 slot to utilise if you want wifi/bluetooth or use external USB dongles. Bummer.

This makes so much sense! Thanks for the info!
That's why the system can't see the cart. This motherboard has only one PCI-E slot so the only way for me will be USB dongle.
Any suggestions?

Thank all the experts in advance for any help and advices:

long story short:
I recently turn a Dell Latitude 4390 Core i 3 in to a hackintosh. But at initial conversion I have not receive the DW1830 wifi card nor the just in case backup purchase: BCM94360NG card.

upon receiving both cards i found that both DW1830 and BCM94360NG fail to have BT function recognised by my built of 10.15.4 .

Since both card has the same issue, does that mean it is only that I did not inject a Kext or else?

What are the best course of action to fix this issue?
Should I inject the kexts first or
simply mask the pins of 54/56 for a try first?

thank you very much.
If only bluetooth is not working but wifi does that would point to the USB ports issue. Your ports must not be injected correctly. I would dig in that direction first.

You can opt to change the motherboard that has regular M.2 wifi slot and use the card you already have. That would be one option. One such board is reviewed here:
Generally look through Gigabyte site for Z390, Z370, H370-B365-B360 chipsets and make sure board does not list M.2 Socket 1 connector for an Intel® CNVi wireless module only (CNVI) as a connection for wifi.
For external USB just google native hackintosh USB dongles. There are several that work out of the box and do not require any kext.

Hi all,
I just install this card WiFi Card BCM94360CD 802.11a/g/n/ac 1750Mbps BT4.0 PCIe Network Adapter that I got from amazon for my current build and was able to connect my wifi on my "ac" band on my router and ran a speed test and it shows 258mbps DL and 200mbps UL (I have fiber).
I installed the kexts following the guide here and when I am transferring 2-3gb file from my MacBook Pro to this Hackintosh using airdrop, the Hackintosh stopped receiving files and stop the transfer. It didn't work before installing the kexts and thought maybe I do need to install the kexts. So, I did but results still the same. Can someone here help me? some guidance.
1. I have both airportbcmfixup & Lilu kext in EFI/Clover/kext/other.
2. Install both brcmfirmwareRepo & BrcmPatchRAM2 (as directed by Rehabman for my version10.14) in /library/extensions folder using kextbeast.

Reboot and try transferring again and still failed. Sorry, thought it would work out of the box but it didn't for air drop.
