Hey guys,

sorry in advance if this question was already answered, i’ve tried to read as much as possible but didn’t find a answer.

Is it possible to use a Broadcom m.2 WiFi+Bluetooth card on a Intel NUC8i5BEH or NUC8i7BEH?

The NUC has a built in Intel Wireless-AC 9560 (Dualband) + Bluetooth 5.0 chip which isn’t working with macOS Mojave and you can’t remove it, tou can only disable it.

If this is possible which one should I get?

I’m thankful for every answer.

Greetings

After installing windows1O on a separate hard drive and updating the motherboard drivers and bios. I somehow managed to get the wifi and bluetooth to work on the Gigabyte z37O Aorus Ultra Gaming WiFi Ver.1 mother board in the MacOS using the FENVI t919 Broadcom card..
Don't know how, had it working once and when restarted it was not working again, reinstalled more drivers thru the gigabyte drive app center, and its working for the moment. I think the key is that you have to update the bios for the motherboard, which I think you can only do on the Windows side.

Only choice, dedicate the M.2 memory connector to Broadcom Wifi with a M.2-KEYM to M.2 KEYA+E adapter

macOS native

macOS/Fenvi, not relevant
Not true. Fenvi t919 in High Sierra 10.13.6 is not native. There has been success for older builds of the OS (10.13.4) but unless you can link an example. It’s not an OOB product with .6 High Sierra.

Thanks for sharing, new job so I’ve been very busy. Mine was also perfect on 10.12.6
Now on Mojave I have to make sure I do t let sleep cause it will shut down and do weird restarts haha
Are you planning on using dedicated graphics down the road?
I'm already using a RX580 Sapphire Pulse ;)
