I have this card, but it isn't working. It worked until 10.12.3 (or so), since that update I've never got it working again.
Thankfull for any help.

AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x111)
Firmware-Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (7.77.37.0.1a1)

I can't switch wifi on, it just stays disabled.
Mine is still working even in High Sierra, unsure why it wouldn't be working unfortunately. I have also confirmed that I have the same version number, etc. as you.

Perhaps it may be worth resetting your network settings? Does Bluetooth still work?

BT works finde.
How can I reset my network settings? DO you mean simply delete the wifi adapter in network?

Does BCM94360CD need any patches in High Sierra and 10.12.5+?
My bluetooth stopped working, on 10.12.5 it's just disabled, on High Sierra wifi and bluetooth work only if one of them is disabled, if I enable both then the system crashes.

I am having some trouble with my Wi-Fi card as well. I've tried the FakePCIID.kext + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, and it didn't work. It's one of the BCM4321

DPCIManager shows
Vender ID: 14E4
Device ID: 4328

It's listed in Broadcom kext, so I am not sure why it's not working.

My workaround for the ASUS PCE-AC66 just stopped working after updating Multibeast and Clover.

Here's the code that was in my config.plist:

Code:
<dict>
                <key>Comment</key>
                <string>Change Asus PCE-AC66 ID to AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x854F) (Yosemite, Sierra)</string>

            </dict>
I just updated to 10.12.6, and it still worked after the update, but I had to update Clover to fix a USB3 problem...

Anyone know how to get this working again?

Your patch(es) for WiFi with Name=AirPortBrcm4360 is wrong. Should be Name=com.apple.driver.AirPort.Brcm4360. Because "AirPortBrcm4360" does not match (is not a substring) against the kext bundle ID of com.apple.driver.AirPort.Brcm4360.

That worked like a charm. Thanks!

EDIT: Sorry, I should add for anyone searching that my wireless card is actually the PCE-AC56, but the patch works just the same.
