No luck dude, only some Atheros and Broadcom cards are supported by mac. There is a darwin port of the iwi open source drivers from linux, yet it only stably supports a few and experimentally supports a few. I think that the project is dead though :(

That sounds good.. But I prefer to have it inside. At the moment I have net via weird cable. I can't use it from the sofa but at least, on the office I have net :)

That's because Intel WiFi cards do not work on OS X. There is no driver support. None from Apple. And none from open-source.

Best to replace the card with a compatible unit and enjoy.

I had a Asus laptop that had a Intel wireless card in it and it worked find with Yosemite 10.10.5 but the one I have now Intel Centrino does not.
