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:
The list of compatible hardware is here (it includes the Broadwell and Skylake NUC WiFi cards):
I am building my first customac. I will buy MSI Z170I Gaming AC motherboard and this mb has an Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 8260 mini PCIe card
So I am interested in this project. Did you achieve to make it work on OSX? do you expect to continue with this project?
Thanks in advanced
