Enable RTL8821CE WiFi adapter in VMware ESXi using PCI passthrough

Im trying to get my WiFi adapter setup in my ESXi LAB setup, but it’s not recognized by the OS
System is a OUVISLITE Mini PC
12GB DDR4 256GB M.2 SSD with Intel Celeron J4125
running ESXi 7.0 Update 3
Wifi adapter is RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter

Adapter info from ESXi Web console

from what I can tell from dmesg output the OS is recognizing the PCI adapter

But not as a WiFi network interface
