It’s really a good news about intel WiFi kext.
But why kext of Touch ID still doesn’t come out yet?

Chinese Kext working on Catalina 10.15.4 with T440p's Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless N 7260 8086:08B2
Working with both 2.4G and 5G networks.

My internet speed: Download: 120 Mbps, Upload: 10 Mbps

Intel 7260 8086:08B2 with chinese kext speedtest:
Download: Max 30 Mbps (Both with 2.4G and 5G)
Upload: Max 10 Mbps (Both with 2.4G and 5G)

Kernel panic when sleep
2.4G feels more stable than 5G

That is all very nice but they have banned that guy who built this staggering kext from that Chinese forum,from what I have heard.So looks like somebody has to somehow find him because this kext is yet incomplete.And it's too bad to lose support for this wonderful kext.
Yes. OR some one with skills on this subject can build it further. I think the potential is huge.

Got it working once but after I restarted, AppleIntelWiFi.kext always causes a panic and prevents the system from booting. Other than that the work seems to be in good progress. :)

The card is detected as a 7265 for some reason...

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

View attachment 450677

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.
On Intel 8265, I can see list of APs but all with WEP security, not able to connect to any (2 APs + Hotspot)

I used attached kext loaded with same commands listed in the original post, kext in the original post caused crash. It didn't require to enter SSID/PWD in plist file.

Anyone can have deeper look into code maybe something might need change?
