@iSA08, try moving your PCIe adapter to another port.
On my Z170X-UD3, Wifi only works with the adapter plugged into PCIEX1_2 or PCIEX4 ports (It may also work in PCIEX1_1 port, but I've never tried)...

Thanks for your help and I appreciate the graphics. I had plugged them in 1_3 but moving it still doesn't work. Definitely looks like the adapter is a dud. I saw somewhere else where they said it works in PCIEX1_1 as well.

As I wasn't able to find fitting information via the search function:

I have a Gigabyte z390m gaming, with the GPU blocking all but one PCIe slot. As I want to use the last PCIe slot for a TB3 add in card, I'm asking myself if its possible to add myBCM943602CS via a adapter to one of the m2 MKey slots.

Anybody done that?
I found this thread but his adapter is for a different m2 key. On eBay I found this adapter. Can it work?

Another idea is to cramp a flexible PCIe cable into one of the slots underneath the GPU, anybody done that before?

Thanks for the help! It would make it the perfect, form factor to functionality machine for me.

Any way to change country code to #a on Mojave 10.4.4 without the use of airportbrcmfixup.kext ?

Because I have a BROADCOM 94360CS2 that is working natively without any kexts and I want to keep it as vanila I can.

On High Sierra I use kextstopatch:
com.apple.driver.AirPort.BrcmNIC 4183FCFF 7435488D 55D0 66C70623 61EB348D 55D0

But on Mojave 10.4.4 doesn't work.
