For me the issue seems to lie in the BIOS logic for controlling the WiFi & BT enable lines on the M.2 card (pins 54 & 56) and can be resolved by taping/masking these pins.
Hello, great to see someone metion wifi problem related BIOS logic.
I have some DW1820A wi-fi card, and it has same problem on some laptop.
Do you have experience with DW1820A.

Wifi BSD name of en1 is fine .... if you have on board ethernet its likely that will be en0, the only real important thing to note with network adaptors is that they start at en0 and have no gaps in their BSD name numbering ...

See section 2.3 of the iMessage guide for more information

Hi livacore,

No specific experience with DW1820A .... but the M.2 specification is the same for all M.2 Wifi cards as such Pins 54 and 56 are most likely the cause of the issue if its a logic level issue so the information i posted for DW1830 will most likely apply to your DW1820A (see post #138 or my sig for the links)

Also a bit more info on this link here :-

Hi, I would like to implement method 2 with the SSDT.
My card is : AzureWave AW-CE123H
When I do the first step to discover which RP0x I need to look for, in the Ioreg I have 3 that show up. I've discovered one is my internal network card but I can't discover which is the Wifi card (As my motherboard has 2 internal Network card one atheros one Intel).

As in the Github there's no file with RP01 I suppose it's the RP05 (as RP04 is my atheros network card). But as I'm not sure I prefer asking before breaking everything. I've included my ioreg

I'm on 10.13.3
