    Hello wildwillow,
    I'm a bit confused. So this card does work out of the box? Or it works with kexts installed? The previous one that I used was the all in one PCIe card and that one work without kext. Thank you.

    Hello aztlan78,
    The card is a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo card. In Sierra the Wi-Fi works out of the box at 5GHz. The bluetooth only requires 2 kexts : BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRam2.kext installed to /Library/Extensions with KextBeast and the bluetooth part of the card is also 100% functional on the next boot.

    What are your settings for sleep to wake 100%? Do you use wake on ethernet? I've tried many different darkwake options but none worked 100% fine. I've got an original BCM94360CD card installed, so that shouldn't be the problem.

    Sleep and wake works, as well as wake on ethernet. But on long sleeps I usually find that the computer has been restarted and sometimes the computers gets out of sleep for some seconds and then it turns the screen off again...

    Using Sierra 10.12.2 and only allow ethernet is enabled. I don't use Power Nap or anything else.

    Unfortunately, I won't be near Hector until March 2017 as I'm at our Winter home. IIRC, I disabled WoL in the Energy Saver pane.

    Make sure you have configured your USB's correctly as this will affect BT. In System Preferences / Sharing = enable bluetooth sharing, you may have to reboot. As for Wi-Fi take a look through here [Guide] Airport - PCIe Half Mini v2. If you have any problems please see the Problem Reporting section and attach the requested files to the linked thread.
