    Hi

    So I purchased a WiFi 802.11ac & Bluetooth 4.0 LE upgrade kit from Ebay for my Mac Pro 4.1.
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252317542350?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    In OS X it works like a charm!
    But I need to have windows as well, and even though the installation was a hassle, I succeeded and can now dual boot. Yay..

    But, with no Wifi or bluetooth support because Windows 10 have no drivers for the wifi and bluetooth adapter. I've tried to download the boot camp drivers from the Boot Camp Assistant software, no luck. I've tried to download the latest boot camp drivers and installed the broadcom drivers, but still no luck..

    I've tried Boot Camp Support Software:
    5.1.5621 https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1720?locale=en_US
    5.1.5640 https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1721?locale=en_US

    I've figured out that it uses the BCM43602 chipset, but could not find any drivers for that chipset.

    Am I the only one with this issue?

    I got the same card from the same seller. Supposedly it's been used by Apple in some retina MBPs, although I can't find any actual evidence of that. I'm still trying to get it working fully in OS X (10.11.4). Haven't even tried Windows yet.

    When you say it works like a charm, what version of OS X are you using it on, and did you need to run the Continuity Activation Tool to get continuity working?

    See if this procedure helps you with Windows: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5780880?tstart=0

    I also purchased that same card for my 2009 5.1 Mac Pro. I managed to get it installed and showing up in the system report but I couldn't get my Magic Mouse and Apple BT keyboard to connect so I removed it and reinstalled the Apple original WIFI card and hooked the Apple original BT card back up.(whew!) It may have been because I didn't disconnect and reconnect my MM and KB. I kept the card but connected a large external antenna to the Apple BT card. I still had intermittent connection issues but lately it's been working perfectly. Maybe one of the latest El Capitan updates helped? I'm using ethernet for my internet now (much faster).

    I believe I'm using Bootcamp 6.0 now to boot into Windows 7. At least that's the version in the utility folder. There is a Windows 10 upgrade available in W7 tray but when I click on it, though it tries to run, it immediately quits. I've been getting my W7 updates no problem. I hid the Windows 10 upgrade icon when it first showed up so maybe that's an issue.

    I just have Windows installed to be familiar with it in case I go the PC route when my cMac Pro needs replacing. I booted into Windows 7 a few days ago and had no Bluetooth and apparently it is now not supported by Windows 7. It was working a few months ago? I could try reinstalling the WIFI/BT card but I'll just use my Apple USB mouse and KB for now.

    Well, Bluetooth is working agin in Windows 7. It must have been fixed by an update.
