I have a cMP 2010 running on Mojave and I want to upgrade the WiFi/Bluetooth. I don’t know what adapter I need compatible with the card I purchased from Aliexpress.

thx

I was more interested in the cable.
so you don't have to tinker with the USB board and seem to be like osxwifi's - or are they even?

That adapter card will work but the 602CD is too wide for it. I have the same setup (until I broke one of the antenna connectors on the card) and because of the plug on the side for the bluetooth, the card doesn't sit flat. You can screw it down nice and tight but its still going to bend over that plug. The 60CD tapers down so it goes around the connector, the 602CD doesn't.

hello, sorry if I get involved in the discussion but I would also like to improve the wifi, bluetooth, and also ethernet, which I find all too slow to date on the mp 5.1 2010 question the best out there today would be the card mentioned by Teck, the BCM943602CDP? or you can do better without having to pay too much attention to changes in the mac
