Strange, I have two laptops carrying the exact combo and all works wonderfully right oob. I only needed AirportBrcmFixup.kext and the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext in /L/E and that's it.
thx for your Answer but BCM94360CS2 is OOB Card, you do not need any kext. it is too late to check and I will not rebuild it because I have custom water cooling and it takes me half a day to do it. (I have PC.. not Notebook)

That was the first thing I did, I removed all the kext's corresponding with the previously installed card but it didn't work then. It might be working oob with plain installation but I didn't have the nerve to start everything from the scratch. It works now, I'm good!

Hi all.

Just found and tested this new fully compatible wifi/BT combo card from Amazon:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B081CFM2J4/?tag=tonymacx86-21

It is similar to the famous Fenvi FV-T919 in operation, but a little smaller and only has two antenna. It's still dual band with bluetooth and I've tested both 2.4 and 5.0GHz and of course BT.

Not a brand you may have seen before. It came in a totally blank, plain cardboard box, antenna, card and USB cable.

This isn't an endorsement, by the way, just a heads-up. I bought one and it's working fine ... so far.

:)

Thanks for the info! So "working fine" does also mean continuity and handoff? That would be an interesting investment. Too sad, that they will not be sent to EU mainland. But why? We still have 6:30 hours till Brexit :cool:

Yes, hand-off and continuity are working here. As I said, this is new for me too, but so far it seems okay - if you can find them in your locality. (Sorry about Brexit - it wasn't me...)

In the meanwhile the vendor confirmed to also ship to DE. Maybe I was causing the trouble by following your .co.uk link from a canarian network access point. Now from DE it works, although more expensive than in the UK (EUR 63.99).

Good luck in Brexternity . May all the made positive promises come true.

I'm also searching for a suitable card in DE.
On amazon I also found the following card:
https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07SPFLDP6/?tag=tonymacx8603-21

I'm no a little bit confused because your card only god 2 Antennas an my card god 3 antennas.
Also the speed of the wifi an the bluetooth version is different.

Did you already test the MQUPIN card now?

Cheers Robert

Yes, but just on the surface. It works OOB in regards of wifi and bluetooth connections and allows airdrop. I did not get hands off/continuity but did not invest much time into a solution as I don´t need these functions (for now).
I have not speed tested wifi but I "had the impression to have" latency issues compared to ethernet so I continued using it instead.
