    I have successfully installed Sierra on a Gigabyte-Z270N-WIFI with i3 7100 + HD630 Graphics

    Everything is working fine except I have no idea how to get the built-in WIFI working.

    Any ideas much appreciated.

    Looks like the motherboard has a M.2_Wireless Slot. So probably you could get a M.2 Adaptor to use a Apple Genuine WIFI/Bluetooth Card. Not seen those M.2 Adaptors around tho.

    Those adapters can be bought on eBay. I have one with a genuine Apple card and currently using in my MB which is a Gigabyte Z170N-Gaming 5 and I already ordered another set for my next build with AsRock Z270 MB.

    I believe its something like this? Ive not seen many of those adaptors around don't have no hardware that requires it. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/3024...=1006749&device=c&campaignid=856845788&crdt=0

    Hey everyone. I didn't want to start a new thread because I figured I could ask this question in a similar thread. I purchased the GA-z270n mobo. I knew before hand that the included wifi/bt card that the wifi doesn't work. I went ahead and purchased an authentic Apple BCM94360CD card and an M.2 adapter. Here's the issue. The included antenna connections don't fit the apple card. Okay, that's an easy fix. I can just purchase new antennas that will work with this card. The bigger issue is that this particular card has 4 antenna connections while this board only has 2 coax antenna points. What can I do?
