My laptop gets blackout and restarts after installation for a few seconds.
I'm using Asus Notebook K501UXM, GTX 950M, i7-6500U
Send help!

This is exactly why the first post says you should not install the kext, just manually load it ...

If you use Clover newer than 5100 (I think) there is an option to manually disable a kext, use it. Or disable all kext if your system can bool without them. Or just delete the kext from EFI if you are able to mount it in another OS, like a Linux booted from a flash drive.

Same issue when loading the kext only.

Ploddles,
Yes, running Catalina 10.15.

shuhung,
I never purposely replaced IO80211Family with the older version.
Not sure how the version for 10.14 got installed...


Unfortunately, I corrupted my install over the weekend and had to start over.
I do have a working Broadcom WIFI card and was just wanting to test the IntelWIFI kext to provide feedback.
I will reinstall and test some more.

If your Broadcom wifi not 4360 then the most probably cause is Hackintool, which provide patched IO80211Family for older Atheros and Broadcom unsupported wifi on Mojave or Catalina.

Can somebody help me with compiling the kext? When I try to build it with Xcode, I get
clang: error: no such file or directory: '/Users/destr0y/Projects/itlwm/itlwm/FwBinary.cpp'
Or maybe somebody can compile kext and give it me?
Thank in advance for your help
P.S. I'm about itlwm kext from the github with similar name. Support for my 9462 ac card appear quite recently, so kexts that are already present here are not suitable for me

Latest itlwm kext (09 May 2020) from Chinese website, unzip attached file and place both kexts to /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other.

Tested with 7265 AC, so far no KP issue but upload seems to be not work correctly, speedtest result, download speed round 35 Mbps, upload 0 Mbps,

Thanks for sharing is download stable?

Yes, so far only upload speed really slow, speedtest upload failed (0 Mbps), others issue not found yet (only tested for 2 days), seems to be OK.

I grabbed the latest version from earlier in the thread (post 136, page 14...AppleIntelWifi), updated with my wifi info, and loaded from the desktop. Using NUC 8 with 9650. I had connectivity right away...this looks promising....I am also running the IntelBluetoothFirmware kext, so just for fun, I tried airdrop/continuity. No luck so far..but both of these are relatively new efforts and I did not expect success :)

I am using the kext from page 14 of this thread on my X2 Elite G3 with a 8265. Works really well so far, getting normal download speeds, upload fluctuates but is still decent. Also Airplay is working super well with my TV and projector, I can not see Airdrop at all in finder. Early impressions are very impressive though, great to have BT and WIFI working at all on this machine, thanks.
