    Doesn't matter, you aren't using the real WiFi or card anyway. Your current network connection is abstracted and NAT'ed over to the VM.

    I dont have a VM. I got rid of it.

    Use System Information to get that info.

    it only identifies the BCM43xx.
    will this terminal command work on a Mac....

    lspci -vvnn | grep -A 9 Network

    This will display:
