There is not much difference between AQC-107 and AQN-107. C stands for chipset where some OEM has bought off those chips and designed their own cards. Like Asus designed their own XG-C100C and failed hard as they
forgot didn't include Wake on LAN circuitry in it. AQN-107 (N stands for NIC) is a complete LAN card designed by Aquantia themselves and you can get directly from Aquantia website. Most likely from their wholesellers like Arrow, etc. It is amply clear that above two are utterly useless for OOTB macOS experience without any kext patches or firmware flashing. You need AQC-107S/AQC-108S chipset based cards to be usable in macOS. Yes the same exact chipset Apple uses in their iMac Pro and Mac Minis.
