The most important thing that a laptop need is a WiFi, when it comes to hackintosh there's almost no solution for unsupported WiFi card. So, first check your card is supported or not you can see the list of supported wireless card here. Theses are the Internet WiFi cards, and the recommend one is Broadcom BCM94352z which can be install easily and works great with hackintosh, you can find this card on Amazon and ebay at less than $20. If your country is one which doesn't have Amazon and Ebay services then you can also order this card from the nearest Dell center.


The another solution for WiFi is you can use the external WiFi Adapter(Also called USB Dongle) from manufactures like Tp-link, Broadcom, Alfa,etc. Remember any external cards will not work with your version of Mac OS. You need to check the compatibility which are usually mention in the box like (Compatible with Mac OS 10.12 or higher). Know your Mac version before you go through shop. Then while you visit through shop, most importantly you need to tell them you're looking a WiFi card for your Mac (don't mention hackintosh). The latest version of Mac OS is Mac OS Mojave and it's version code is 10.14 , so you're running Mojave then you need to buy a wireless card which is compatible with 10.14. Following are the popularWiFi Adapters for Mac OS and it's compatibility.
