Ok. I think that I removed it before sending the last file batch, but copied the DPCI file before restarting that time. I have attached the new files and looked for the FakePCIID kexts. Cannot find any...
Fakepciidkexts would normally be in either Library/Extensions folder on main partiton or in the EFi Clover folder.

Go to top tool bar and select Finder then scroll to Preferences and click. Check the box next to Hard Disk, now all your drives will appear on the desktop. This makes it easier to find things.

Use EFI mounter to mount your EFI and check there as well, it will appear as a drive on the desktop.

Thanks for the tip. They are not there. I am fairly certain I removed them. There is no mention of them in the DPCI bootleg.

Not true, IOReg shows FakePCIID

Post #910 attachments:
IOReg shows IO80211Locale=RoW, not correct
IO80211Locale=FCC, correct for IO80211CountryCode=US
Not idea where that got set incorrectly
Suggesting updating AirportBrcmFixup.kext to latest
Restart, reply with new files

First and only report of Broadcom/CNVi socket success
Well I'm using Asrock z390 phantom itx, and this board ships with CNVI card, while the same slot support M2 A+E too. I replaced the stock CNVI Intel 9560 with a 94360CS2(with adapter), and it works.
I don't think this is very rare.

Quote out of context. To clarify:
Broadcom does not work with Gigabyte/CNVi sockets. picov claims Broadcom works in his Gigabyte B360, one and only success; very rare.
Broadcom works in ASRock and Asus CNVi sockets, as expected.

Thanks of the clarification. I understand now. That's rare, indeed.
I picked Asrock instead of Gigabyte only because of the CNVI slot can't use a M2 brcm card.

Try these kexts in clover/kexts/other folder. DCPIManager pic try using the PCI tab and posting a pic it will show the device IDs. I changed your RTVariables CSRActive to 0x03FF its for Mojave and above to get SIP disabled.

Hi @toleda, i'm using a BCM943602CS combo wifi/bt card, no third party kexts installed. Everything works perfectly, handoff, airdrop, instant hotspot. but i still have 2 problems (hardware info attached)

1. if i turn on wake from network access, i got very high wifi latency after wake from sleep, ping router gets 100ms~1000ms.
2. i'm not able to wake up via bt keyboard or mouse.

My hardware is as it says in my profile. BIOS version 4.1. on macOS 10.14.4/5, 10.14.6 beta2 same issue. I have tried following settings with no luck
1. enable/disable WOL from BIOS
2. enable/disable PCIE ASPM
3. Install/remove AirportBrcmfixup.kext

Here are some logs wake from sleep:

Wi-Fi:

Code:
wl0: fatal error, reinitializing, total count of reinit's[1], @'wlc_ol_down':1509
wl0: fatal error, reinitializing, total count of reinit's[4], @'wlc_verify_d3_exit':4796
BT:
