Y'all overpayin'. ;-).

I have three builds using this card. It is not too expensive (US$27.24) and works perfectly with Continuity, Handoff, Airdrop.

See trs96's following post. I don't think this card will work after all.



Now for $41 USD, you can get AC 1900 (1730Mbps) with BT 5 >

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DMDZ888/?tag=tonymacx86com-20

Note: you have to scroll down to the comparison table to see that it is compatible with macOS.

Note 2: "You must have a wave 2 router that is capable of 160 mhz, and in my case." (From one of the reviews.) Like the reviewer, I have the Netgear Nighthawk x4s R7800 wireless router.

Note 3: Looks like you'll have to purchase the BT USB cable separately.

Note 4: Newegg has this card on sale for $37 plus shipping. Newegg's description makes no reference to hackintosh, just Windows.

I don't think the Amazon reviewer was talking about the same card. The one with two antennas is Intel based so it won't work with macOS. You can read that in the description, it's Windows 10 only.
Supported Operating Systems: only for Windows 10 64bit Note: If your computer doesn’t equipped a built-in optical drive, please download the driver in the link.(http://en.fenvi.com/en/download_zx.php or https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/99445/Intel-Wireless-AC-9260) Lightning Fast Speed Wireless speeds up to 2030Mbps with 1730Mbps on 5GHz or 300Mbps on 2.4GHz band, immediately one step ahead on surfing online.Supported Under Intel vPro Technology

@trs96 Nuts! Well, I almost pulled the trigger and bought it. Glad I didn't.

This one from Fenvi with the red heatsink does work. It doesn't have any BT so that is a big disadvantage compared to the FV-T919 that only costs 10 dollars more and has BT 4.0.

Got it - I re-googled the Apple Watch unlock issue and now see I caught that reference to BT 4.2 from a 3rd party article. None of the official Apple support pages reference BT 4.2. Was a late night and was a bit frazzled when I posted previously. Thanks trs96 and scottkendall again for the guidance.

First, I'm sorry for bringing this thread up again.
But I need some help.

I've got a FV-HB120 and Wifi/Bluetooth works nice.
Apple keyboard, Wireless Headphones and Airdrop are working very well.

Besides that, I'm having trouble with Handoff and Watch unlock. I can't make them work. Have already installed AirportBrcmFixup.kext and have no ethernet cable. Any ideas to fix that?

You should not need any kext maybe that’s the issue
