Intel WiFi is not supported. There are no drivers.

Hi all:
Have any tips for install intel ac3165 at Sierra?

xxxx-iMac:Downloads xxxx$ csrutil status
System Integrity Protection status: disabled.
xxxx-iMac:Downloads xxxx$ sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext
Password:
xxxx-iMac:Downloads xxxx$ sudo kextload AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext
xxxx-iMac:Downloads xxxx$ sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext
xxxx-iMac:Downloads xxxx$ sudo kextload AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext

kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext "/Users/xxx/Downloads/AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext"
kext signature failure override allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext "/Users/xxxx/Downloads/AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext"

BTW if I typing sudo kextunload AppleIntelWiFiMVM.kext
then crash and auto reboot.

Many Thanks.

Intel WiFi is not supported.
Replace incompatible hardware with compatible hardware.

Hi RehabMan:
I saw AppleIntelWiFiMVM can work with Intel Wireless 3165.
And that is laptop... I think it is hard to replace another hardware.

Thank your reply

The goal of this project is to create an OS X driver for those Intel WiFi cards based on the MVM firmware (basically, the current and previous generations).

Supported Hardware
The following Intel WiFi cards/chips are supported:

  • Intel® Wireless 3160
  • Intel® Wireless 3165
  • Intel® Wireless 4165
  • Intel® Wireless 7260
  • Intel® Wireless 7265
  • Intel® Wireless 8260
  • NUC on-board wireless for NUC 5i*RY*
  • NUC on-board wireless for NUC 6i*SY*

You clearly didn't read post #1 very carefully.
I have a kext that identifies compatible hardware and loads and digests the matching firmware, but it doesn't yet do important things like, say, connect to a network.
And that is laptop... I think it is hard to replace another hardware.
Wrong. Most laptops have replaceable WiFi.
