can you upload exactly what .kext you want me to try because I don't have Xcode installed and it will take forever to download it on this crappy usb wifi dongle

That's odd because you said that you already tried it.

0:106 0:000 - WIFI: Vendor=32902 = Intel

I believe this is referencing my onboard wifi card. I am using EW7811Ln USB which I believe uses Realtek kexts

If it is in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other then it will not show in kextstat.
oh I didn't know that? I wish I knew that sooner haha, well I can try to install it to L/E and report back then

In Catalina /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other is the correct location.

Well its not working in either location, and with kextstat my whatevergreen.kext and lily.kext show up even know they are only in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other so I'm just stumped

Thanks for trying to help

Suggest that you use an online pci database to correctly identify your Ethernet controller and then install a kext that supports it in Catalina, other than that no further ideas.
