Jimmie with BCM94352 HMB/AzureWave AW-CE123H. Built with VioletDragon's git repo, toledo audio, and post #1. Full WiFi, Bluetooth, Handoff and Hotspot functionality with Sierra. Now running High Sierra. WiFi fully functional but now shows as 'Third Party Wireless'. Is skvo's optional AirPort Extreme kext patch no longer working with High Sierra? Also with Bluetooth, Handoff and Instant Hotspot are no longer working for me too. BT4LE-Handoff-Hotspot kext patch still good? Did I miss something? Zip attached.

Same here I was running BTFirmwareUploader.kext which worked fine in 10.12.6 then switched to BrcmPatchRAM2.kext and BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext both running just fine for BT in EFI/Clover/Kexts.

Could someone can help me to find a macOS-compatible wi-fi+BT combo card for my Lenovo E530?

I'm running the same kexts out of /S/L/E. I believe you should be using BrcmFirmwareData.kext in EFI/Clover/Kexts/10.13 or other. I've never used Clover for BT injection. I think it's worth a try if you want to stick with Clover BT injection.

I started having bluetooth issues from since 10.12.5 and also in High Sierra.
In 10.12.5 it's just disabled, in High Sierra wifi and bluetooth work only if one of them is disabled, if I enable both then the system crashes.

Previously i always had native support, do I need to patch something now?

Vendor 14E4 / Device 43A0

Hello, I am having trouble with my AR9285 wifi card and am requesting help.

I installed Sierra on my Lenovo T510 laptop. I replaced the Intel Wifi Half mini wifi card with the AR9285.
I modifed my bios to remove the Bios whitelist. My hard drive is partitioned with Windows 7 and the wifi card works fine with Windows. However, I am not able to get the wifi card to work within Mac. I have tried using the kexts - IO8211Faily.kext and the ToledaARPT.kext but neither have worked. I also tried patching my DSDT file but was not able to get this to work either. See attached files. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

[Guide] Airport - PCIe Half Mini v2
I bought a DW 1550 PCIe Half Mini WiFi card, but could not enable it (Fn+F2) on my laptop. I could enable the card on another laptop but then Windows 10 could not find any SSID's. Tried every trick I knew or could find. I assume the card is defective.

I now want to try the original Atheros AR5B97 card, which used to be supported (see: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/atheros-ar5b97-wireless-network-adapter-b-g-n.118941/). But references to this card are no longer in this guide. I assume because of Sierra-problems. I found the attached info.plist, see: https://gist.github.com/aandresortiz/2d46c6dc9880b9b2840d80911a8d7021, which seems to indicate that the card could be used under (High) Sierra, but no instructions. Could you help?
