They are not the "same device" at all. WiFi is on PCIe. Bluetooth is on USB. Just because they are on the same PCB is meaningless and irrelevant.

Hi RehabMan, I have read this guide https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-10-11-usb-changes-and-solutions.173616/ for many times. I can not understand the usb working principle completely for my lack of hardware knowledge and bad english. I just try some work, but it can not find bluetooth.
  1. Rename EHCx->EH0x in DSDT. XHC is not necessary renamed to XHC1, right?
  2. install USBInjectAll.kext and FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext.
Could you please tell me simply that what is the right work should i do? what major information should i concerned.

thanks a lot!

USB is off-topic here. Reply in the USB guide thread. Be prepared to provide "Problem Reporting" files as requested.

Note: You do not want to rename XHC to XHC1. The goal is to use names that Apple *does not* use.

The iPhone you just use the various features (AirDrop, handoff, etc.) ... to the extent they work. No need to pair it.
Just tried airdrop and it worked fine. So can I rule out a bluetooth issue with the driver? Because my bluetooth keyboard (Varmilo VB87MS) is not working and it worked fine with Mavericks. I've heard something about the bluetooth in Sierra being a new version and thus hardware that doesn't have up to date firmware will no longer work.

I do not know if you guys find this interesting, but... I have recently installed OS X El Capitan 10.10.6 on a Lenovo Yoga 700 14isk. Wifi does not work but Bluetooth does! Out of the box. It detects and can by detected by other devices. Can confirm file transfer works.

Network section from device manager on Windows

If I try to share internet connection over bluetooth, my Lenovo can connect to my Macbook as 'self assigned ip' and can 'not be connected to the internet'. Just wondering if I can get this to work. Any chances?

Edit: Connected my Macbook to they internet using a network cable instead of Wifi. The network tab on my Lenovo now shows a green circle in front of 'Bluetooth PAN' and got an IP address. However Safari pages keep loading forever.

Edit2: It works! Had to turn 'bluetooth sharing' on as well as 'internet sharing over bluetooth' on my Macbook. Well, at least I don't have to transfer files from my Macbook to the Lenovo via USB anymore...

Hey I just built a new machine and installed macOS Sierra. Everything went fine except the wifi. I installed a TP Link TL-WN851ND PCI Adapter. The system recognises it and it connects on startup for about 1 minute, then drops connection. Any help will be appreciated :cool:

Sorry 4 the bad english :!:

trying this BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext
the bt is now showing in the sys pref. but i didnt connect any device, and some times it cant find any device. :(

i have problem with this card in windows as well. i can't connect any bluetooth device in windows. but the wifi is perfectly working. i didnt install any driver on it. but i update the driver and it says i already have the latest driver. ( i think its a generic bt driver ) .. and sometimes it cant find any device. :(

i didnt try the card on windows 7 / or 8.1 ) so that i didnt confirm it if the bt card is working properly.

You need to get the firmware for 0a5c:22be and configure BrcmPatchRAM to load it.
That specific device is no longer supported by the Win8/Win10 drivers, so it is not included in BrcmPatchRAM...

Check in Windows Device Manager in Windows 7 to find out which firmware it is using.
Then read BrcmPatchRAM README.
