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):

Hi ammulder

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

All kexts should be installed to the system volume, or loaded via kextload.

Not all kext work when injected by Clover (such as this case).
