I have a question.

for the AppleIntelWiFi.kext after having issued the following:

1. Sudo chown -R root:wheel *.kext
2. Sudo chmod -R 755 *.kext
3. Sudo kextload -v *.kext

I should be able to have WiFi.

Now do I need to issue the above every time i restart my computer?

Only number 3, but leave out the -v and change *.kext to AppleIntelWiFi.kext (don't forget to cd into the folder the kext is in or list the path as part of the command.

Ah ok. So item 3 has to be done whenever i restart my system. In that case better to keep a copy of the kext safe some where.

Thank you.

AppleIntelWifiAdapterV2.kext Release

That is confusing then. As V2 is older (says Version 1.0 when you unzip) than the original version that says Version 1.1? V2 was also created/modifies earlier (the day before) than V1?

Not in my case... Just kext load the following times

You mean you don't have to load the kext every time you restart?

Because for me every time i restart, i need to manually load the kext.

Care to share how you did?

I think he means that he doesn't do 1 and 2 every time. Just loads the kext every time.

Sorry, I don't explain myself so well ... I have to load manually the kext on every restart. In other words, the number 3 as Ploddles explain very well ...
just to simplify a bit the process, you can use a script to load the kext only clicking & typing your pwd ...
