Hey @ammulder, is this project still going on? Maybe we could join some other programmers and try to keep on with Intel Wireless settings, I don't think this is impossible to achieve... we could try to help
I read an article in 9-5Mac and they mention the new Whiskey lake chips and Apple possibly using them in new MacBooks. They have intel gigabit WiFi as a main feature. If this is true it may be a way in for intel WiFi. Or apple may request special chips without the WiFi?
