Mine has 2 Antenna Connectors and not three
will it work?

I am also interested how to solve the 3 vs. 2 antenna issue, heard somewhere the connector has different diameter size.

Forum member arnoparigo found a place to order the BCM94352Z M2.NGFF WiFi / Bluetooth Combo card:

If the quantity (7000+) is anything to go by, that should be enough for the hackintosh community :thumbup:

It is covered in post #1. Cross that bridge when you come to it (eg. when you have the hardware installed).

I get an boot error after card is put in
should i remove and configure it first?
in Windows 8.1 everything is fine

the debug.log is from a boot before the card is installed

The photo shows the panic in the driver AppleAirPortBrcm43224.kext
See attach...

This occurs because of the options in the your Clover config.plist:
ACPI -> DSDT -> Fixes -> FixAirport_4000=Yes

By default, for Broadcom cards, option FixAirport_4000=Yes make inject to DeviceID=0x4312.
This loads the driver AppleAirPortBrcm43224.kext, that causes Panic.

To fix, you must set the option FixAirport_4000=No and use Airport Injection Methods from post#1.

Alternative method.
You can also use configuration inject through Clover config.plist. For this purpose it is necessary to have three options:
1. ACPI -> DSDT -> Fixes -> AddDTGP_0001=Yes
2. ACPI -> DSDT -> Fixes -> FixAirport_4000=Yes
3. Devices -> FakeID -> WIFI=0x43a014e4

The last option - a must. It make inject to DeviceID=0x43a0, and loads the driver AirPortBrcm4360.kext

After doing this both steps it boots fine and Wifi works
thanks for the help Skvo and mosser

How do I see which connection my wifi uses?
802.11 ac/abgn 2,4 or 5 Ghz
