I installed the official BCM94630CD using this adapter: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B071QXSXXX/?tag=tonymacx86-21

Bluetooth is working OOB

However, I've got Wi-Fi: No Hardware Installed message in top bar and wifi is nowhere to be found in System Info..


Have trashed all network prefs etc and I've replaced IO811Family.kext with one from another 10.12.6 install I have on another computer and it hasn't worked.


I notice in the Toleda Half Mini Thread that it mentions BCM94360CD working out of the box but not HM - does that mean I need to get a PCI card adapter rather than the half mini? Problem is I'm using a 1U rack case and so I don't have the height.. Bit messy to start having to get PCI riser etc...


Have checked IDs in DCPI and it is a genuine apple card with correct device / vendor ids


Any thoughts?

Hi - having trouble getting BCM4352 working in Sierra 10.12 on g750jw. Tried the various airport injection methods detailed on toleda's wireless_half-mini readme one method at a time and here's the result using FakePCIID + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFI + fcvo patch (reboot without cache, rebuild cache, reboot) result.

Debug shows fcvo patch getting applied, AirPortBrcm4360 kext loading, and driver logging 'wlcStart failed'

0:154 0:000 - [02]: AirPortBrcm4360 (10.12-BCM94352-fvco-darkvoid) :: MatchOS: 10.12.x :: BinPatch :: data len: 8

Hoping to get one of the experts here to take a look and let me know where I messed up. Thank you!!!

Name=AirPortBrcm4360 is wrong.
Must be:
com.apple.driver.AirPort.Brcm4360
