I didn't realize there was probably 2 versions of kexts out but version from post 136 worked for me too. No kernel panics on couple hours usage and reasonable wireless N speeds. Also I got 9650 bluetooth working with IntelBluetoothFirmware and IntelBluetoothInjector kexts. Just dropped Broadcom card in to get handoff etc. but following how this goes.

I have a 9650 and the version from post 136 worked for me....I did have issues getting the commands to run.
I ended up typing them in rather than cut and pasting.
I have the same card. When you say it worked, you mean without any issues?

Most likely not, these are the models that are included.

One iwm_module may support more than one wifi models, see below link for detail.


In theory, AppleIntelWifi should support all 3000, 7000, 8000, 9000 series Intel wifi but depended on source codes XXXX.cpp definition.

Since AppleIntelWifi not open source, use itlwm code as example.
mac80211.cpp (from itlwm) source code sample.

Recently, there are no Intel AX2xx support yet, waiting for AppleIntelWifiAdapterV2 or itlwmx project update.
