    For some reason my Mac Pro wifi card doesn't not seem to be recognized.

    Apple removed Broadcom BCM94321MC from Sierra and Atheros 9380 from Mojave. BCM94322MC still has support on Mojave.

    Which wifi card do you have?

    I have the same problem... had to connect using an ethernet cable. My wifi card is AR5BXB112. Can confirm this model does not work with Mojave, but does work with High Sierra

    I've ordered a pair of BCM94322MCs for $10 each off of amazon, and am using a 3rd gen airport express until they arrive and I install them. I just wish there was an easy way to see what card is in my macs...

    Open a terminal session and paste the following
    Code:
    ioreg -r -n ARPT
    When you get the return, look for “IOName” = “xxxxxx”

    Google the actual values where the “xxxxxx” appears and it will tell you what card you have.

    I.E. “pci14e4,43ba” is a Broadcom BCM43602 802.11ac Wireless

    That's helpful. Looks like my 2011MBP has a BCM4331 (pci14e4,4331) I'm not sure if that's Mohave compatible...

    Yes, it is. BCM4322MC uses the same driver on Mojave and people with MacBook Pro 2011 with Mojave + dosdude1 patch reports working Wi-Fi.

    I have the atheros model. I would like to get ac wifi but the price is insane.

    Thanks Zeke D, looks like I just ordered the last one in stock, or so it said at least.
    Not sure I will be installing Mojave but wanted to be ready just in case. I have the Atheros card and I'm still on Sierra.
    Also, I've heard changing out the wifi card is a pain in the butt. True?

    It’s not difficult per se, but the leads are short, and there’s not a lot of room to work on it.

    When you get yours from Amazon and install it, let me know if you’re able to connect to 5ghz networks. My 2010 with the Apple 94322MC sees my 5ghz network, but the one from Amazon doesn't.

    Glad I caught this. I put in a cancellation request on my Amazon order, hopefully in time. That 5 Ghz thing is a big deal. But if it does ship out to me I'll try it and report back.

    I'm not sure if mine's just defective or not.

    I'll just grab one if & when I need it. I plan on sticking with Sierra for quite a while, and I'm good to go with High Sierra too. Gone are the days where I would update the day a new MacOS was released. If it ain't broke.............. ;)

    I put another one in the 2009, and it too doesn't see the 5Ghz.

    Mines "pci14e4,43a0." Looks like it is Broadcom BCM94360CS2. I got it on eBay. It was supposed to be from an iMac, but it looks like it's actually from a MacBook Air. Works great with this adapter: http://r.ebay.com/knvywG

    After installing Mojave none of my network cards on my 2017 27" iMac are available. I Have no idea what is wrong, I have reinstalled same problem. I used the following terminal to show devices. Any help would be appreciated, before I try to install again.
    ioreg -r -n ARPT and it returned:

    Seems that your AirPort Extreme still present to the hardware, but not working. Did you tried to reset NVRAM/SMC?

    This is a example of a working one:

    Did you put the correct antenna wires, since on the Mac Pro has three antennas for Wi-Fi but BCM94322MC has only two?

    I connected wires 0 & 2, with #1 tucked under the card, the same as the 2006 airport card. With both 94322 cards, system profiler shows it as a "Third Party Wireless" instead of Airport Extreme.
