I just got my Broadcom BCM943602CS card installed. The wifi works OOB.
For bluetooth, it is able to connect my magic mouse gen 1. But for some reason, after using a while, the connection will be lost and after like a few minutes later it will connect back.

oh yeah, i am using 10.14.2

Anyone has similar issue and able to help?

Hi there.

It sounds like an antenna problem. Where do you have yours? I have the same card and need a desktop antenna to get a reliable connection :thumbup:

I have 3 antennas on the card but unsure which is for wifi or Bluetooth. my PC is below my desk about 1m from the mouse.

Yes, mine gave me problems. I know they say 10m for BT wireless, but not in this case (from my experience). That's why I bought a desktop antenna for it.

This is my BCM943602CS -

Does that help? (I think I posted this some time ago in the wireless thread).
