First of all, I would like to thank Tony, Rehabman and all the other members of this forum as I have greatly benefited from the guides they have posted, especially for my laptop Dell XPS 15 9530.

I have ordered a BCM4332 half mini card to replace my Intel 7260 which comes with my machine to install an El Capitan Hackintosh using Clover(UEFI).

I do not know if I would need any kexts/mods in order for me to run my new Wifi Card. Would anyone where I can download any kexts for the card?

Thanks again for a helpful website guys! Wish you a Merry Christmas!

BCM4332 not supported (text of post), but BCM4352 (title of thread) is.

BCM94352 requirements:
- FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Fake-PCI-ID. Install with Kext Wizard to /S/L/E.
- BrcmPatchRAM: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM. Read the README carefully.
- 5Ghz patch for WiFi documented here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html
- handoff patch for bluetooth documented here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/network/104850-guide-airport-pcie-half-mini-v2.html

Kext for BCM4352

Sorry about the typo. I saw your response to my other thread and you said that I wouldneed a NGFF card. So will this BCM4352 work or would I need a BCM94352Z? I just checked my Intel 7620 under the hood and its a NGFF(2 notches?)

Many people have been saying that the BCM4352 works but I am not really sure. Thanks for the quick response Rehabman!

half mini PCIe BCM4352: BCM94352HMB
NGFF BCM4352: BCM94352Z

You should physically inspect your existing WiFi card or refer to your service manual to know whether you need NGFF or half mini PCIe.

FYI: Pretty sure the Dell 9530 uses an NGFF WiFi card.

The requirements (software wise) for either form factor BCM4352 are the same.

Yeah I thought so too. Its a bummer. I had to order the NGFF card too. Hopefully I can sell the half mini online or something.

BTW where is /S/L/E.? Sorry I am very new to hackintosh....:)

/S/L/E is short for /System/Library/Extensions
