A good starting point is to read through the guide on page one of this thread. Most questions can be answered in the guide that CaseySJ has put together.Hello people
I am having problems with the Wifi network of this motherboard. From what I read, Mojave doesn't support Intel's Wifi network natively, so I want to swap for the BCM94360CS2 WiFi / BT card.
My question is if I can remove the original Intel CNVi card and put the BCM94360CS2 WiFi / BT card in its place, ie in the same slot?
Another question, but in relation to TB3. For the device to appear in the System Report, do I need to have something plugged into the motherboard's TB3 output?
Thanks for the help!
From the guide on page one.
I have been using the BCM94360CS2 WiFi/BT with PCIe adapter card for 7 months with no issues.The Intel CNVi WiFi/Bluetooth card that comes preinstalled on this motherboard is not compatible with Mojave, but it's not necessary to remove the card. A natively-compatible BCM94360CS2 WiFi/BT card can be piggybacked onto a suitable PCIe x1 adapter (see Components) and installed into an available PCIe x1 slot. The CNVi slot, moreover, is not pin compatible with NGFF M.2 cards, but it may be pin compatible with NGFF Key-E M.2 cards. I have not tested this so I cannot attest to its suitability on this motherboard.
The Intel CNVi card connects Bluetooth to USB port HS14. And the PCIe adapter with piggybacked BCM94360CS2 module should be connected to the motherboard USB 2.0 header (F_USB) located next to the FAN_PUMP header. This header consists of USB 2 ports HS11 and HS12. A custom SSDT, applied in post-installation, therefore disables HS14 and enables both HS11 and HS12.
Currently it seems that the Fenvi FV-T919 is the preferred WIFI/BT solution.
