No, unfortunately. I'd either stay with the tonymacx86 Buyer's Guide's wireless card recommendations or use the iMac WiFi/BT4 card and PCIe adapter card like this one.

which is now out of stock but is fully compatible.

Unfortunately, all of the above cost $60 or more.

Hi, I have the same card and for now I only want to make bluetooth work. Is it possible? In System report there is a bluetooth device recognized but not fully.
