I purchased a BCM94360CS2 for my new build as it was cheap and sounds reliable from the threads. I'm new to the whole hardware side of everything so I really don't know compatibility wise what works and what doesn't.

I would think "theoretically" something like this would work https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Half-M...431884?hash=item1a530bcc8c:g:Xh8AAOSwhJFb1mJh but I am often wrong about these things..

Any suggestions would be awesome, and working solutions even more awesome!!!

Yea I had read that thread before posting. So that is an all in one PCI adaptor/antenna that comes w/ its own chip Broadcom BCM94360 where I already have a BCM94360CS2 chip so I would just need the PCI adaptor/antenna. What I am in the dark about is if I bought a PCI/antenna adaptor (like the one I posted above) if it is is simply plug and play or if there are compatibility issues.

Lol, well looks like I just found what I need https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076KBBFV4/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 . It does seem though, at least from reading the amazon reviews, that these PCI antennas are chip specific. I'm still gonna reach out to the seller on eBay, its almost half the cost as this amazon one, I'll post back if I can find one cheaper.

I'm sure I can get a much faster chip that will work with my hackentosh but like I really just wanted to get something that is pretty much plug and play.

if you do get the adapter, make sure its the one that YOUR card can fit and make sure the antenna points on the card face the correct way. I still have that BCM94360cs card pulled from a MacBook Air and it cannot fit into the pcie adapter correctly. opted for the BCM4331. plug and play in 10.13.6 for wifi and bluetooth. Handoff works with continuity kext. only thing this card DOES NOT support is unlock with apple watch since that is supported on 802.11a/c and this card is 802.11n
