[Mojave] Dell E7450 + Dell DW1560 - Wi-Fi: No hardware installed

Hello! I have successfully managed to clean install and run the latest version of Mojave. 

 

The only thing that is not working is the wi-fi module (DW1560). A system is showing me Wi-Fi: No hardware installed message.

 

Bluetooth is working at the same time, so hardware-wise it should work. 

 

I tried installing the following kexts to /L/E/ and rebuilding cache, but it does not help.

 

AirportBrcmFixup.kext

BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext

BrcmPatchRAM2.kext

FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext

FakePCIID.kext

Lilu.kext

 

Could you point me what to do?

 

For my EFI, I used the bootpack from the post here: 

Thanks in advance!

Please refer to the Wireless & Bluetooth forum section. DW1560 is based on BCM4352 chipset which is not supported OOB and requires patching.

Hello! Thanks for replying to me. I am pretty new to the DSDT patching, so it was not that easy to find a concise guide on that. Do you think this one covers what I need to do? -> https://hackintoshpro.com/patch-dsdt-hackintosh/

 

So to rephrase, now that I have the kexts I mentioned in my first post installed, I need to patch DSDT with the code below using MaciASL, right? 

 

Will be happy if you could point me if my direction is right. 

 

Thanks!

Replace files into /EFI/Clover

Remove these from /L/E that your installed above, repair permissions and rebuild cache

  • AirportBrcmFixup.kext
  • FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext
  • FakePCIID.kext
  • Lilu.kext

No DSDT patching needed. If you still have issue after that, then post debug file

Make sure you really do have a DW1560 and not some fake

Thanks, Jake!

 

I tried resetting it and replugging the antennas, and checked in Fedora Linux, seems the card is not working after all. The slot is working fine as the stock Intel 7265 works fine in Fedora.

 

So I will go with DW1820A, looks like it is a better choice, hope it will work!

 

Thanks!

DW1820A is hit or miss, I would stay away from that. You should return the DW1560 to Broadcom and had it replace with another. DW1560 works really well for me.
