Does this work for Intel® Wireless 3168?

Looks not so...
Hope in future will be support. Think at the moment is a good time for MacOS in other machines. But in future nobody can say it. Better would be Apple would be more open to the community.

Mean Windows is nothing for me, Linux is great for Server Environment, but for Work I prefer MacOS

Most of the laptops today have intel wifi and for me they're very reliable. I mean why not use Intel wifi since they use intel processors already.

Hi guys, there is one other person who is making a kext for it. He just started 3-4 months ago.


Check this guy out:

I think he needs help so if anyone is willing to devote some time feel free to visit his github.

I have also been working on this over the past months, my work is currently private on github as I haven't wanted to make it available till its ready, but its progressing well. I am going to start off with only supporting MVM cards and later add DVM support.

In order for everyone to keep up with development I shall make it public:

I'm working off of mercurysquad's Voodoo80211 work and converting the the Linux driver written in C to C++, only taking the necessary header files from the Linux source.

@champgoblem In what phase are you now in? Like does macOS recognize it or will it able to see connections?

@Qola currently its at a very basic phase, it can recognize the hardware and get the appropriate config for the device. Programming is slow for now because I'm trying to figure out what each little puzzle piece does in the bigger picture, but once I start to get an intuition development should speed up rapidly.
