If Bluetooth is working, don't mess with the PatchRAM stuff.

The DW1830 doesn't need additional kexts for Wi-Fi to work. At least it didn't when I tested it... I don't know if anything has changed.

For the DW1560 to work, you should install AirportBrcmFixup.
That's what's strange. Suddenly it disappeared from the system and in IOREG. The whole Airport tree is gone.

This is the story:
WiFi is running
I update to the latest Security update in Mojave and at some point I realise WiFi is gone.
No matter what kext I use, if just BrcmBluetoothinjector, PatchRam, FakePCIID...it simply is not seen anymore. Bluetooth works.
So I remove the module. Fit a native module. I make it work.
When the native module works I remove it and put back in the DW1830. At this point the DW1830 works again.
You tell me...

According to this page:
This is the latest way of implementing DW1560/1830:

Such implementation preferred method is this:
Clover Airport Fix + AddProperties(fake device-id) + AirportBrcmFixup (preferable)

I never added Airport Fix or fake device-id.

All I do is drop AirportBrcmFixup.kext in to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/ and it works.

Hey. BTW Bluetooth. I bought a HAMA USB Bluetooth dongle which it randomly disconnects from my speakers. Tried speakers with my MacBook Pro, Google Nest, phones. They work perfect, they never disconnect. I have installed the Bluetooth explorer from Apple.inc, and I caught the error:

Code:
HCI Controller terminated; module unplugged or firmware reset/crashed.

Link quality is between 97-100%, and I'm within distance between BT and speakers.
I have ordered another BT device, what do you think. Does the Bluetooth which fails or shall I apply patches/kesxts?

I have no idea. I've only used Bluetooth from BCM94360CS2 and DW1830 on this build. Even then, I only connected mice and trackpad to it...

That's part of the whole point. Once updated to the latest Mojave I had no WiFi card showing up.
By following these instructions:

using this combo:
Clover Airport Fix + AddProperties(fake device-id) + AirportBrcmFixup (preferable)

The unit started working again. Both 1830 and 1560.

It's weird that it works for me without Clover Airport Fix and AddProperties in Catalina but latest Mojave needs it...

What's more strange is that in Mojave, suddenly after an update to BrcmBluetoothInjector, the module became unavailable. So I thought I'd go back to the previous version of BrcmBluetoothInjector. At that point the system was unavailable no matter what so I had to look into it again. If the same happens to you, that's how I got it running again. Cheers.

No, this never happened to me.

I use Apple BCM94360CS2 cards in my Z370-G and my Z390 M. Neither have had any issues with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. I've updated to the latest versions of macOS on both.

I use a DW1560 in my laptop and haven't changed/updated Bluetooth drivers/injectors/PatchRAM in months and haven't had any issues. I've also kept macOS on the latest versions available.
