Please let me know about the result! :) it could actually be a feature of the 2.0.0-alpha version…
CONFIRMED!

AirportItlwm 2.0.0-alpha no longer requires SecureBootModel to be set to Default. We can use Disabled.

Is this for OC 0.6.8, 0.6.9 or both? Catalina and/or Big Sur?

I ask because I'm still using OC 0.6.8 and Catalina.

This actually applies to AirportItlwm 2.0.0-alpha, but I tested it only under Big Sur 11.4 beta 1. It might work in Catalina as well.

@Middleman,

With macOS Big Sur 11.4 Beta 1 it is still necessary to use FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Intel_I225-V.kext to attach the 2.5GbE driver AppleIntelI210Ethernet.kext. If we don't apply the fake ID, we default to the 1GbE driver.

I can confirm that adding the kernel patch provided by Vit9696 on the dortania guide posted earlier, FakePCIID.kext + FakePCIID_Intel_I225-V.kext are no longer needed (MacOs 11.3). The AppleIntel210Ethernet kext is loaded (v2.3.1) but I cannot test 2.6GBE speeds as I have no devices. (I'm on Vision-G)

Cheers!

That’s good to hear, I’ll certainly give it a try!

One thing I’ve found with my Z490 Aorus Xtreme build is, while Big Sur and Catalina will now boot fine, the EFI under OC 0.6.8 will simply not boot on High Sierra 10.13.6, but will on my original OC 0.6.5. And yes the Aquantia slot and Intel WiFi works in High Sierra! I’m also in the midst of enabling the iGPU fully on my Rocket Lake i9 to work as a headless!

But certainly I’m not sure what is causing the issue of High Sierra non-booting on my OC 0.6.8 build...

Also I’m also booting successfully from Thunderbolt on the latest build on both High Sierra and Big Sur!

I can confirm that the speed is 2.5 Gbps when following the dortania guide and removing the FakePCIID.kext + FakePCIID_Intel_I225-V.kext.

I'm on Z490 Vision D and Big Sur 11.3

I can confirm it too. Both Ethernet ports and WiFi now all finally working on 11.3 for Rocket Lake i9 Z490 Aorus Xtreme!

I know but the benefit of 6 GHz is that you don’t have to worry about legacy non-WiFi 6 clients, and you also don’t worry about the bane of the 5 GHz experience in my view: DFS and RADAR.

Clean 160 MHz channels in 6 GHz with no DFS/radar is what I’m looking forward to. In the current 5 GHz band available to WiFi, it’s not possible to enable a 160 MHz channel that isn’t subject to a random frequency hop if radar is detected.

Also, WiFi7 (80211.be) seems exciting. But that’s coming in 2023-24.
The Linksys Atlas WiFi 6E mesh router is finally available, but only in a 3-pack for US$1200. Ouch! Gotta wait for the 2-pack and/or competing products.

$1200 for 6 GHz are they crazy? With those prices, they must think it’s a GPU, Lol. Early adopter tax. I will be waiting.

My Ax210 isn’t going anywhere.

@CaseySJ and others, do you guys know if there is an WiFi card - apart from the onboard Intel AX201 - that supports AX mode and is compatible with our system?
I have the combo BT+WiFi (original Apple module + PCIe x1 adapter) which supports up to AC.
I recently changed my router and got an Asus GT-AX11000 tri-band but somehow the current WiFi card does not work anymore. The card can join the network and get an IP address but somehow I don't have access to the Internet even if in the network status it is stated that I can. There is an option in the router to enable AX/WiFi 6 mode which I turned on (since I am planning to use the onboard Intel one later one), and there is a warning that some WiFi card might not work. Just wondering if there was a cheap AX WiFi card or USB dongle that I could install while waiting for the onboard Intel one to fully support AX.
Thanks.
