I do not understand. I patched the power management using your DSDT battery patch (https://github.com/RehabMan/Laptop-DSDT-Patch) and followed your instructions for disassembling and reassembling. As for the other SSDT files I thought I should only include the ones that were altered in the patched folder? Should I pull the other SSDT's from the original folder?

Updated my patched folder to include the additional SSDT's, wifi still not working. New EFI folder attached.

I might be able to help you patch your ACPI files (DSDT/SSDTs)... Please provide me with the native/untouched files extracted by Clover or from a Linux dump. And some info regarding your laptop's specs.

Post 9 includes a zip with the date that has my EFI folder. ACPI/orgin contains the untouched files generated by F4 in clover. There is also a separate zip with my ioregistry report that has specs. Its here as well, except 32gb ram and the noted wifi card Im trying to get working in the original post. (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015QZPRW4/?tag=tonymacx86com-20).

I applied some patches according to RehabMan's guide, patches applied to DSDT, SSDT-0, and SSDT-7.
I applied the battery patch "battery_ASUS-G75vw.txt". You should test it.
I did not apply a proper audio layout id injection, you should patch your DSDT with the layout id from ur patched AppleHDA. Or you can tell me what layout-id you need and I can do it for you.
I am providing you with the .dsl files that you can compiled into .aml and test.

Good luck.

Ill test out your patches, but this thread is directed mostly toward the wifi card. I successfully patched the battery previously. Audio is not currently working, but it has not been my main focus. Regardless, appreciate your work and Ill see if its better than the patches I had previously. Thank you.

WiFi requires compatible WiFi hardware and appropriate kexts installed.

Read FAQ:
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capita...faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Usually not ACPI related, unless you're having trouble turning on the radio.
Well this is the main question I originally asked in post 1, is the Broadcom BCM94352z compatible. According to the wifi section of that url it is and thats what originally convinced me to buy the card. However, its not working.

As mentioned in the original post, I followed the instructions below regarding adding the correct kexts to S/L/E the BRCMPatch, but the wifi still doesnt work. The only step I didnt follow was the 5ghz patch as I did not completely understand what I needed to do, but it seemed more for bluetooth anyway once you have wifi working.

"BCM94352 requirements:
- FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext (was FakePCIID_BCM94352Z_as_BCM94360CS2.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. Install with Kext Wizard to /S/L/E. Make sure you read the README as the kexts you install depend on OS X version and installation location.
- 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"

I appreciate both your inputs, but I feel like the main point here is being glossed over a bit in an effort to follow the usual steps to help someone. My goal here is Wifi, nothing else right now, and any ideas on how to get it working. The rest of the setup works great.
