I've encountered the same slow wifi after wake with a BCM43602CS natively supported card on an X99 platform (and verified the same behavior on a Z270 board). CrashReporter is also filled with driver crashes for the chip on every wake.
Everything else about this platform is working extremely well, in fact it's my most stable build to date.

I realize the 'fix' is to disable the Wake for network option, however I wondered if the driver crash (and presumably the slow wifi) has ever been resolved by DSDT edits. From viewing the logs it looks like the chip does not suspend/resume in harmony with the OS X driver. With my somewhat limited experience I did tinker with _PS0 and _PS3 methods in my ARPT SSDT, however to no avail.

I read through all your GitHub archives but couldn't find anything to address this issue. Have you ever looked into this and/or found a solve, or is the consensus to just give up on remote wake.

Thanks

The fix is to disable the wake option in SysPrefs.

The fix is to disable the functionality. As I would like to use the Wake on network functionality, is there a known card/combo that supports this capability without losing wifi speed? Is a DSDT fix remotely possible?

Yes. Hackintosh is full of compromise.

Not that I know of. The problem is relatively pervasive, probably caused by slightly incompatible hardware.
If you can find room in your laptop, you might be able to install Apple native hardware with an adapter...

Got it. As I mentioned in my post above, this is a natively recognized BCM943602CS Broadcom card (as used in MacBooks) via a PCIE 1x adapter in a desktop that is supporting bluetooth in the BIOS, about as compatible as I can think of. This combo is producing the same symptoms across 3 mb's I've tried it in.

Unless it is Apple branded (eg. official Apple replacement part), it is not Apple native.

Still no workaround for this issue?

Read post #13.
I already did, and I have it disabled. Is it possible to disable it only for the wireless card and leave it for lan?
