if i turn on wake from network access, i got very high wifi latency after wake
Apologies, no expertise on WOL
not able to wake up via bt keyboard or mouse
Not a Broadcom problem, off topic

Both problems are likely related, not because of Broadcom WiFi/BT as your post suggests
Verify USB is configured properly for the "built in" BT device. See one or more of the sticky USB configuration guides posted in other Forums. Off topic.

Hi @toleda

Thanks for your advise. The bluetooth is at HS03, connector is configured as 255 for internal devices. I think i’m all right on USB, 9 HS ports, 6 SS ports, all work. The bluetooth works great, but it (bluetooth kb or mouse) can not wake up computer. Is it related to the intel CNVi thing?

Tried to decode bios “setup” as plain txt, search inside, found some hidden options related to Wifi and BT. I’m gonna take out my macbook air 2013’s wifi/bt module and install it to my hack, if problem remains, i think it is the asrock B360M-HDV motherboard problem.

Thank you again.

@Gigamaxx reinstalled Kext provided and still no luck along with updated the "Config" file you provided. As requested, here is the PCI List Read Out with an updated Misc log. Also confirming I tried installing these in both the s/e location and Clover/Kext/Other and then tried a second version with these items just in s/e and a third version with them just in Clover/Kext/Other

@toleda if there is something glaring I'm missing please let me know as well? The part of your guide I did not know how to do was:

"Remove all Wifi patches and kexts from Clover fixes (config.plist/ACPI/DSDT/Fixes/ and Clover patches (config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KextsToPatch/)"

All original issue files were attached to my previous post.

Why is the RX 580 install in a x8 slot?
What slot is the 4352Z installed?
Is WiFi enabled in the BIOS?

The part of your guide I did not know how to do was:
Remove all Wifi patches and kexts
FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext are not mentioned in Post #1, remove

I installed all Kexts from the Guide of this thread.
Neither of the installed Brcm kexts are mentioned in Post #1, remove
See Post #1 for correct BT kexts

Install all kexts to the location noted in Post #1
Restart, reply with new Problem Reporting files.

Confirming that you're saying it didn't recognize it based on something I did wrong with connecting the hardware?
No. Verify DW 1560 works, verify installation is correct.

Based on the response I got at the link below I ended up buying a different WiFi card and returning this one. Thanks for all the help.

Is there still any way to let bcm94352 Wifi 5Ghz work on 10.14? @toleda
Just want the BT to not interfere with 2.4G Wifi. Otherwise, it's stuttering badly. Thanks in advance.
