Yes it's Broadcom based.
It is a no-name dongle PANBT400
Were you using AirportBrcmFixup.kext?

Can you post a screenshot of OpenCore Configurator --> Kernel

Hi! Thanks @CaseySJ for all your work here, this Golden Build description has gotten me through the years :)

I recently (and successfully) managed to upgrade to Monterey 12.5, OC 0.8.3, using the Intel BT/WiFi using the recent guides. Amazing! And so clean feeling.

Only problem is, my Thunderbolt ports stopped working. I'm attaching some OC Configurator screenshots. (You'll notice I tried adding in some kexts/acpi from my pre-upgrade set-up before switching to the EFI you posted here)

Thanks for any advice! Never had an issue with the TB ports over all these years and I'm struggling to find the issue.

Hello @xtrell

Regarding the Thunderbolt ports, let’s take a look at IOregistryExplorer—> RP05 section. Simply run IORegistryExplorer and scroll (not search) down to RP05, then post a screenshot.

Which Thunderbolt device(s) are you using? Do they work if connected and powered up before booting the system?

Which version of BIOS is installed?

Also, in the ACPI section of config.plist, we should disable the last SSDT (Aquantia) if there’s no Aquantia 10GbE card installed in a PCIe slot.

Once again, you are correct sir.
AirportBrcmFixup.kext was unchecked.
Now that it is checked, everything is back to normal.
Should I also check the BrcmFirmwareData and the BrcmPatchRam3 kexts ?

Glad to hear it. It’s actually best not to use other Brcm kexts if everything is working properly without them.

Just wanted to confirm for anyone else having this issue. the method worked. I flashed back to F9i and I got both my thunderbolt/usb-c ports working with no modifications to my EFI. so seems to be that the new capsule bios breaks USB-C definitely not a good idea to flash that.
F9j also had USB-C broken on TB ports.

Attached is the RP05 section.

I generally use a few external hard drives connected via the Thunderbolt ports, but my Scarlett 2i2 audio interface is the main squeeze. It would appear that the computer sees the small disk inside the audio interface but not any of my hard drives. (I checked the BIOS boot menu to check this.)

I'm using BIOS F9i.

Thanks for the tip about the Aquantia SSDT, whoops.

Just learned that "Wake for network access" works perfectly with Intel i211 Ethernet natively driven by AppleEthernetE1000. I can now wake my machine via VNC viewer or screen sharing. Although I've never got it to work with FV-T919, i219(IntelMausi) or i211(SmallTreeIntel), has anyone able to get FV-T919 card to wake up computer from the sleep state on this board?

With the Fenvi FV-T919 installed, both of my Designare Z390 systems are able to sleep and wake properly. I have disabled "Wake for Network Access", however, and use my keyboard for wake.
