10-1-19 Update: Finally back at Amazon.com :)

Q. Why is a natively supported card so important ?

A.
At some point in time, Apple will completely deprecate kexts, probably sooner than you think. Cards like this don't need you to install any kexts to make it function. Works as soon as you plug it in to a PCIe slot. For the BT part to work you will need a USB-SSDT for your motherboard that enables the internal BT header.

If you want even better range from this card you can add a high gain antenna if you are a long ways away from your router. Some say that this increases the signal 10x.

Update 9-6-17 It's now over 3 months since the Fenvi FV-T919 has been out of stock at Amazon.com therefore we have removed it from the current Buyer's Guide. It's occasionally possible to find one on Ebay if you watch for it.

Original Post:
These are now supposed to be in stock on the 6th of June instead of the 31st of May.

This is the OOB compatible PCI-e adapter Wifi/BT card with the iMac BCM94360CD wireless card included.
You'll need an open PCI-e x1 slot on your motherboard.

It costs more than ordering it direct from China but you'll get it about 3x faster. If you need to return it for any reason, you won't have to deal with the hassle of sending it back to China. Just a few things to consider.

Hope they tripled their order this time !

I know this is aimed at those with a Hackintosh but would it work OOB in a MacPro 1,1-5,1? I have a 1,1 and a 5,1 I'd love to get Handoff and Continuity working on.

I have a Mini PCI-E with only 2 antennas on the circular connect. How do I do this?

I have this and the bluetooth doesn't even work in my El Capitan , doesn't even recognize it. Not sure if its just a bad card or what. Wifi works OOB though.

There can be other causes of BT not working on one of these cards. It's not always a defect. You'll need to make sure USB ports and usb headers are all working normally and there are no problems in your Clover config.plist.

These need Windows drivers installed to work properly on a PC. Have you installed those ?
