Hi, ammulder.

I have a Intel 8260 wifi and would like to test it for you.

I upload the driver-file. It's recognized correctly. Since I don't know much about the hardware, I log the result from Console.app and hope it's useful for you.

Small update.

Big thanks to @ydeng, who reversed headers for IOKitFamily80211 from High Sierra. I updated them to be compatible with Sierra (as I previously mentioned, High Sierra works terrible on my machine) and now we're able to load black80211.kext. This gives us one small thing:

WiFi adapter is visible in settings and MacOS sends some IOCTLs to the driver! Next step is to understand how to work with all those ioctls available and respond back correctly so that operating system will understand what do we want.

Tomorrow I'll update GitHub repository with new headers and provide built kexts so that anyone who want to test it will be able to do it.

For those who interested: NO, this doesn't mean that once you load kext your WiFi card will start working. There are still a looooooot of work need to be done in order to make it work.

I'm supportive of this effort and will even switch my intel card back in to test once it reaches a point I can

My daily routine is to check your repository to see whether there are something new. Really expect your success and hope you will reach there.

Hi guys,

I updated GitHub repo and built kexts for Sierra and HighSierra. Could you please download kext and try to load it on your system? If kext would be loaded correctly, you should be able to see WiFi adapter in network settings.

You can grab kext here: https://github.com/rpeshkov/black80211/releases
