Only tested on 7265AC, should also work on other intel cards but not tested yet. This driver currently ONLY works in 10.15.

First edit the Info.plist and add the ssid and password

Then load the kext using terminal (Dont install directly into L/E):


Code:
sudo mv ./*.kext /tmp
sudo chown -R root:wheel /tmp/*.kext
sudo kextload /tmp/*.kext


The driver is in early development stage and there are still bugs such as high packet loss. The wifi card is mostly functional in the current version.

you are not supposed to do that, you need to load it every time you boot

After install (7260) the wifi hardware is recognised and shown by Hackintool but no wireless networks are detected.
System is reacting slowly with all adjustments concerning wifi (e.g. turn o/off wifi in system preferences).
Is there a way to deinstall the kext or do you have any advice?

Great work! Tested with 8265NGW and 9260NGW on Catalina 10.15.4 with same results. Kext loads without errors, WIFI is connected with correct IP adress, however computer freezes just a second later.

Nice to know that it worked for you initially for 9260. For me, it simply crashed upon loading.
