This thread gets a bit confusing as there are at least 2 different versions and names for the kexts. Some people are using/testing one and others using another and it isn't clear which kext works with which controller or who is using which one. People refer to a GitHub project and then others to a 'Chinese website' but not saying what that website is. :banghead::?::think:

@Ploddles,

It's always a good idea to ask first if you have doubts. Use the Contact Us (bottom of the page, left) to ask.

If your Broadcom wifi not 4360 then the most probably cause is Hackintool, which provide patched IO80211Family for older Atheros and Broadcom unsupported wifi on Mojave or Catalina.
I had not installed my Broadcom card yet when I was having this issue.
It is a Dell 1560/BCM94352Z.

Intel 8265 AC should supported by itlwm, it use wifi over IOEthernet method same as most of the usb wifi adapter, look like ethernet device more than wifi device, nothing show at wifi pane/system information is normal, use IORegistryExplorer for verification.
