So, I removed (as far as I know) all patches and kexts related to Wifi, the wifi is on sure, but it doesn't seem to detect any connections. Anyone care to help me fix this?

Thanks.

Antenna connections good?
Did you test the hardware in Windows?
Country code issue?

You might try the alternate configuration: XHCI Mode = "Smart Auto", then use FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext (keep in mind you'll need a completely different SSDT-UIAC.aml).
I'll give it a try. So I think install FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext, what should I do re the SSDT-UIAC.aml please? Also, am I still using the EHC1/2 to EH01/2 rename?

Well, it's a laptop though...
But yeah, it's fine and all in Windows, so I don't think it's a hardware issue.

Oohh.. is that really relevant to this problem? Well, I'm currently on the default region. Let me change it a bit.
Edit: even after changing the region to #a (that people said should had increased the channel), it's still null.

You should both be posting in the appropriate laptop forum.
Ah, my bad, I thought this post installation > network subforum is also for laptop.

Hello everybody,

trying to get Bluetooth to work again after going to Mojave (10.14. and 10.14.1) from Sierra.
I did a clean install because I thought I had something misconfigured - I could not install High Sierra or later with 16.2 system definition. Even clean install did not work with 16.2, so I am now running with 14.2 and HD6200 graphics.
I did restore the old system from TimeMachine, so there might have been some things restored that should not have been.

Broadcom BCM94360HMB seems to natively support Wifi, but Bluetooth is not working any more.
Removed FakePCIID stuff I hope, added BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext to /L/E with KextBeast but they do not seem to load. Cannot find any error messages referring to why.

My configuration:
Board ASRock Z97E-ITX/AC latest BIOS
Intel i5-5675c with HD 6200
Broadcom BCM94360HMB 0x0b05:0x180a

Bluetooth does appear under USB as BCM20702A0, so I hope it is configured well enough?

Am adding lots of problem reporting files in case they could help as required - and am hoping for suggestions.
Any further output required?

Thanks a lot in advance!
Rudolf
