Masi51952,

OS X does not support any Intel WiFi cards whatsoever. So if you have a laptop with the every common Intel AC-7260 NGFF WiFi you will need to replace it with a Broadcom WiFi for use in OS X.

no i did not mean to Use the intel one on my Mac
I just wanted to Show that The other Card (Intel 6230 with no NGFF in The description) worked on my mainboard in Windows And was not NGFF

So i search for

802.11 ac
Dualband (2,4 And 5 GHz)
Mac (native) And Windows compatibility
it can but dont need to have Bluetooth
probably also without NGFF

Your motherboard is either M.2 NGFF (different NGFF sizes exist) or PCIe half-mini.

It cannot be both at the same time. So make sure you know exactly what your motherboard needs before you make a purchase.

Native 802.11ac PCIe Half Mini - only Broadcom BCM94360HMB (AzureWave AW-CB160H)
Chipset bcm4360, up 1300 Mbps

Broadcom BCM94360HMB used in ASUS X99 Deluxe motherboard...


P.S.
Warning! Antenna connector on BCM94360HMB - MHF4, as PCI-E M.2 (NGFF)...

Mine has 2 Antenna Connectors and not three
will it work?
And where can i buy it
I live in Germany (Europe)

Or which other card is good but not natively working
Is the Lite-On WCBN606BH (Lenovo FRU 03T7135) working natively?
If not, where can I find drivers and Installation guides for Mac And windows?

It should be 100% like AzureWave AW-CE123H and Dell Wireless 1550
Broadcom BCM4352 BCM94352HMB
Wifi+BT
Mini PCI-E
802.11 abg/n + ac + Bluetooth 4.0
2.4+5Ghz
867 Mbps

Besides the earlier engineering CS1 samples of the BCM94352Z which look like this:

102539d1408884856-guide-dell-xps-9530-bcm94352z.jpg
Shown installed in a Dell XPS 9530 replacing the Intel AC-7260.

Two new BCM94352Z based NGFF card products have now appeared:


  • Foxconn T77H543.00 (Found in Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro)
  • Lite-On WCBN802B

Hopefully this will increase the availability of the card.

What is the vendor/device-id? After you determine that (DPCIManager->PCI List), read post #1.

In fact I have ordered it but it is not here
it will arrive in the next few days

How do I get the vendor/device-id?
