Thank you for the reply.Some general guidelines:
For an example, please refer to the Z490 Vision D OpenCore 0.6.5/0.6.6 EFI zip files for OpenIntelWireless located here:
- Download the correct version of AirportItlwm.kext for the version of macOS you're using. There are different builds for High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina, and Big Sur.
- Disable SSDT-DESIGNARE-Z390-NO-CNVW.aml
- Set SecureBootModel to Disabled
- Remove any other WiFi/BT card

I did exactly as you wrote, copied the AirportItlwm.kext from the Z490 EFI (I'm on Catalina). But I still don't get my WiFi to show in the system report. I've got no prior WiFi BT card installed so I "only" need to work with the EFI and am not dual booting. Let me know if you'd need extra information.
Here are relevant screenshots of my config.plist.
The Kext Airportitlwm is added in OpenCore config. .
Checked that SecureBootModel is set to Disabled (I couldn't find where to do this from in OC Configurator so edited the text with Sublime Text):
Device properties are set like the ones on the Z490.
My Wi-Fi in system report still doesn't show up.
edit: I managed to get wifi working using itlwm and heliport. But still would very much like to get AirportItlwm to work if I can. And learn something along the way.
edit-edit: After trying one last time with AirportItlwm and setting SystemBootModel to Default (not Disabled), it now works! Also speeds are the same as what I get with my WiFi router on other devices in the house, so it's a super win for me. I don't have a super fast internet anyways. Again @CaseySJ thank you for your help and finding out how to make this build.
