Thanks! Although I was actually thinking about doing a clean install, so might wait for the guide, because I'm running Clover now and think it might be a good idea to go over to OpenCore. Or is it?
It's possible and recommended to migrate from Clover to OpenCore on the same version of macOS. After ensuring that OpenCore is working properly:
  1. We can perform an in-place upgrade to latest macOS.
  2. We can perform a clean install of latest macOS. We can follow the GibMacOS procedure for downloading the full Monterey installer and creating a USB install disk. Then we copy OpenCore EFI folder to EFI partition of the USB install disk and boot from that disk.
    • See Step 1 and Step 2 here, but change references from Big Sur to Monterey.

Oh, I can migrate without starting from scratch? Is there a guide for this too? Thanks!

Has anyone had an issue with intelWireless Kext and only getting around 20 MBPS max of wifi speed? I am not able to figure out what the issue is, but it seems to be much slower than all other devices on the network (Fiber 1 GBPS).

Update: I have also tried on the same PC on Windows OS and am getting at least 100 MPBS.

IntelMausi 1.0.7 -- I am on the latest 0.7.4 files for OC
Intel Wireless is controlled by AirportItlwm.kext, whereas IntelMausi controls the 1GbE physical Ethernet port on the rear IO panel.

We can also hold OPTION key while clicking the WiFi icon on menu bar. This will show extended properties of the network. What PHY Mode do you see there?
