I have a broadcom netlink gigabit onboard internet IC however every broadcom kernel extension I've tried doesn't work I've even gotten my wifi detected at one point but it only worked once and after I rebooted the machine didn't load the wifi kernel extensions.

I tried to read the entire thread but i keep getting confused. I have a strix Z370-i which features two m2 slots (M.2 Socket 3, , with M key). Since it doesn't offer another PCIe slot i have to go for a m.2 card. Every single recommendation says i should get an m2 card (BCM94360CS2 , p.e)and a NGFF adapter but i cant seem to understand how they fit (as my board has the 5pin wide and most of the NGFF offer A/E). Additionally, i have a spare AzureWave AW-CE123H, does it work ?

Note: Asus specific
Remove the metal case (not the antenna jacks), remove Intel WiFi, install Broadcom M.2 A/E.
Modifications are required to the metal case
