All,

I've started work on a project to port the current-generation Intel WiFi drivers from Linux to OS X. Right now it's very, very early in a process that looks to be a very, very long one. 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.

Still, it's a start, and if anybody has a recent Intel WiFi card and wants to give it a spin and confirm whether it recognized the card successfully, there's a build with instructions here:

https://github.com/ammulder/AppleIntelWiFiMVM/releases/

The list of compatible hardware is here (it includes the Broadwell and Skylake NUC WiFi cards):

Just to confirm this works on my ac 3165 and I can connect to a wifi and use internet! Remember to disable gate keeper before kextload or it won't work.

It does have high packet loss as mentioned this is the effect it works it stops it works it stops it does have pauses.but otherwise it works.It doesn't restart automatically after a while like other users said for me.but it does restart if I turn on and off wifi a couple of times or try different networks to connect to.

Getting rid of high packet loss and then the restart problems.Nothing can replace this kext ever.This is the best kext easy to use and works on variety of Intel wifi adapters.

Wondering if anyone else is seeing this error message:

kernel) OSMetaClass: Kext com.apple.iokit.IO80211Family class IO80211ActionFrameDescriptor is a duplicate;kext com.apple.iokit.IO80211FamilyV2 already has a class by that name.

(I'm connecting an intel wifi chip - tried both - AX200 and an 8265NGW to a macbook pro through a thunderbolt3 to PCIE connector)
